Students who have a credit on their account with the College (due to excess financial aid, private loans, tuition remission, overpayment, etc.) may reduce their loan amount or have the credit applied toward their next semester. To reduce a loan amount, students should contact their counselor in Student Financial Services (617-735-9938). Students may also request a refund of any excess funds on their account. Since financial aid is disbursed after the add/drop period each semester, we recommend students and their families budget accordingly if they plan to use their refund for living expenses.
For the spring 2019 semester, refunds will be available starting the week of February 19th.
- To verify if there is a credit balance on your account, log into EC Online Services via MySaints and select Tuition Bill & Payment Center to review your billing statement.
- To request a refund of a credit remaining on your account after your bill has been paid, you must submit an online Refund Request Form:
a. Log into MySaints
b. From the EC Online Services Menu, select "Student Financial Services"
c. Select "Refund Request", then "Refund Request Form"
d. On the Refund Request Form, you will have the option to have your refund issued via either a paper check or Direct Deposit (recommended). If you choose Direct Deposit, after you submit the Refund Request Form you will be redirected to the Direct Deposit Form to enter or verify your bank account information.
- If the student wishes the refund to be sent to another person, they must select the "Check" option on the Refund Request Form, and specify the name and address to whom the check should be made payable.
Please allow up to 10 business days for receipt of your refund after all of your financial aid has been disbursed to your Emmanuel account.
Once the Refund Request Form is received by our office and your credit balance is verified, the refund may be processed. A check in the amount of the refund will be mailed to you at the address you listed on the form, or transmitted to your bank account if you requested direct deposit through the Refund Request Form on EC Online Services.
