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.

Students may also request a refund of any excess funds on their account. Most refunds are not available until mid-October for fall semester and late February for spring semester, because financial aid is disbursed after the add/drop period. We recommend students and their families budget accordingly if they plan to use their refund for living expenses.

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. Refunds issued directly to the student may be issued via direct deposit (recommended) or paper check. 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.

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. 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.
