Refund Policy

General refund policy information

Amounts received in excess of your charges will be refunded to you automatically, unless restrictions require that excess amounts be returned to the payment source.

  • Refunds cannot be mailed until funds are received and credited to your account.
  • A refund check will be automatically generated to the student and sent to the student's mailing address, unless other arrangements are made with the Cashier’s Office.
  • Credit Card Adjustments (Credit Card Payments) When you pay by credit card and there is an adjustment made to the charges paid, we are required to credit the credit card account used to make the payment. Existing regulations prohibit the University from making a refund to you in cash or check when payment was made with your credit card. Please allow two weeks for your credit card refund to be processed. If you do not receive your credit card refund within that time period, please contact the Cashier’s Office at (203) 837-8381.
  • Check Payment Refunds: When you pay by check and there is an adjustment made to the charges paid, a refund check will be issued within six weeks from the date the check was deposited. If you do not receive your refund check after that time period, please contact the Cashier’s Office at (203) 837-8381.
  • Financial Aid Refunds: The University cannot disburse your financial aid onto your account until the funds are received by the university. Once received, the funds will be disbursed onto your account within three business days. Any excess financial aid will be refunded to you within five business days of being disbursed onto your account. Students will receive an email notification to their WestConn email when their financial aid check has been issued and available for pick up. If you do not receive your financial aid refund within that time period, please contact the Cashier’s Office at cashiers@wcsu.edu or (203) 837-8381.
  • Checks Issued in Error: In the event that the Bursar's Office issues you a check in error the University reserves the right to reclaim such funds.
