When will my refund check or electronic fund transfer be ready?

If you would like to receive your refund check via Electronic Funds Transfer, please see our Refunds page for more information. Electronic refunds are directly deposited to your bank account and an email notification is sent to the student when the refund has been released.

Each semester, students who receive financial aid that overpays their student account statement,  receive a refund after their enrollment is confirmed, beginning the third Friday of the semester.  Students are encouraged to enroll in electronic refunds in support of our Champlain's sustainability initiatives. Student enrolled in electronic refunds will receive an email notification. If  a student is not enrolled in electronic refunds, a check will be issued and will be available for pickup at the  Enrollment Service Center  at 174 Perry Hall from 1 pm - 4:30 pm on Friday, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm the next Monday and 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on Tuesday. Checks not picked up will be mailed to the local address of the student unless it is a refund to the parent on a PLUS loan overpayment. Study Abroad students must also complete enrollment verification through the Office of International Education before a refund check can be mailed to the home address.
