REFUNDS OF OVERPAYMENTS

Need to buy books? Students may request a FlexCash purchase from their tuition bill credit balance for use at the PSU Bookstore. The form can be found at plymouth.edu/office/student-account-services under “FlexCash Purchases.” Be sure to read the request form for the availability of these FlexCash funds.

All refunds must be requested through the online bill by completing the Direct Deposit Authorization and Refund Request Form. There is a “Refund Request” button if the student is eligible for a refund. If the student does not have a button, the student’s overpayment is the result of “pending activity,” “account notes,” or a PLUS loan. If the student has a PLUS loan, a refund will be issued to the parent borrower unless the Student Account Services Office receives a Plus Loan Refund Release Authorization granting PSU permission to issue the refund to the student. The release may be found at plymouth.edu/office/student-account-services under “Student Forms.”

For information on direct deposit and when funds will be transmitted to the student’s bank, please check the Student Account Services Office web page under “Refunds.” To avoid any delays in the issuance of a refund, students need to make their FlexCash tuition bill purchase, course schedule, and room and/or meal changes prior to their arrival on campus.

Note: Refunds that are federally required to be issued to the parent borrower will be mailed out the third week of the term.
