If the withdrawal or course drop results in a credit balance in your fees account, i.e., payments are greater than charges, a refund cheque is produced. Allow approximately four weeks before refunds are available from the Student Finance and Awards Office. The University has been directed by the Ministry of Education and Training to return refunds to your bank in instances where assistance was received through a Government Student Loan.
