Any unpaid charges on a student’s financial account with the university will be subtracted from any refund prior to processing a refund request.  For payments made by credit card, refunds will be credited to the original credit card account and will be reflected on the credit card monthly statement.  For each term, credit card refunds will be processed after the term's Change of Schedule period.  However, students may ask for a credit card refund prior to this by contacting the Bursar’s Office.  If a student receives a refund of amounts charged to a credit card, the credit card owners are responsible for paying any and all interest charges accrued on the credit card. 

Questions regarding refunds should be referred to the Bursar’s Office, Enrollment Services Center,

Room 336, 410-704-2100, or call toll free 1-888-5BURSAR.
