Students who receive financial aid in excess of their bills will be issued a refund in September/February depending upon the semester. The refund will only be issued after the funds have been received by the College and the student’s enrollment has been confirmedusually the third Friday after semester classes begin. Refunds are processed weekly after the third Friday of the semester.

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.

Receiving Your Refund

Students are encouraged to enroll in Electronic Funds Transfer to have the refund sent directly to an enrolled bank account and to support sustainability initiatives at Champlain College. Otherwise, a paper check will be mailed.

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

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

Direct Deposit

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, if one is issued to you. Students receiving an electronic refund will receive an email when the refund is processed and released for direct deposit to their bank account.
