Tuition Refund Information
Direct Deposit Refunds Are Here!We are happy to announce the implementation of direct deposit refunds through JP Morgan Chase starting this Fall semester. Students eligible to receive a refund will receive an email from Chase Payments advising them to accept the refund. Students and Parent Borrowers will also be asked to create their profile, record the refund delivery method, and update their bank account details for refunds through a secured JP Morgan portal. We have included a sample notification from Chase on MyStevens.
Tuition Refund Information
You can add any US checking or savings account to receive the direct deposit. Creating your profile with Chase Payments is only to facilitate recording your refund delivery method and the bank account details to transfer the funds.
ACH (electronic) deposits typically take from 1-3 business days after you have accepted the refund on the Chase portal.
Stevens is requiring direct deposit as the method of delivery for all student refunds. Students who do not accept the direct deposit within 3 days will have a check mailed to their US address in the below order:
Please note that all checks are mailed through USPS and may take up to 3 weeks for delivery.
Parent Plus Loan borrowers who elected to have eligible credit balances sent to them will also, receive an email to accept their refunds through the Chase portal. Electronic refund notifications will be sent to the email address on the Plus Loan Application.
Refund of Credit Balances
Student refunds are based on a student's current account balance. Refunds will be issued after the last day of add/drop. Students with a Payment Plan and a resulting student account credit balance, will not receive a refund until their account is paid in full. We recommend that students with an excess amount on a scheduled payment plan contact Nelnet for a budget adjustment. The Office of Student Accounts will issue refunds to all students for payment amounts received in excess of the amounts due to Stevens. Excess payments made by third parties or outside organizations shall be refunded in accordance with the direction of that organization. This policy applies to all Stevens students and their accounts with Stevens.
Refunds will be issued no later than the time period required by law and regulations. No cash refunds will be provided. Refunds will not be issued to anyone other than the student, parent borrower, or their corporate sponsor (if applicable). Returned refunds shall be subject to the State of New Jersey's unclaimed property law and turned over to the State of New Jersey as required.
