Refunds

Students who receive financial aid in excess of their bills will be issued a refund in September and/or February. The refund will only be issued after the funds have been received by the College and the student's enrollment has been confirmed-usually the third Friday after semester classes begin. Students are encouraged to enroll in Electronic Funds Transfer to have the refund sent directly to the enrolled bank account, and to support sustainability initiatives and efficiencies at Champlain College. Refunds are processed weekly after the third Friday of the semester.

To enroll in Electronic Funds Transfer login to Self Service and click on "Bank Information." Once enrolled, you will receive an email with information about the amount and date of the refund, whenever one is issued to you. Students who are receiving an electronic refund will receive an email when the refund is processed and released for direct deposit to their bank account. Proceeds from parent loans that exceed the cost of tuition, dorm, meals, and other fees, will be refunded to the parent borrower. All other proceeds will be issued to the student. A refund will not be issued for accounts with payment plans for touchnet® or sponsored billing since these plans represent outstanding balances.

*Study Abroad students must also complete enrollment verification through Champlain College's International Office before a refund check can be mailed to the home address.

Checks will be mailed to the billing address of the student. Please verify in Self Service at https://selfservice.champlain.edu/Student/. Click on your username at the top right, then "user profile." You can view and edit your address as needed.
