Checks and Refunds
If you need to make a request for a non-financial aid refund please email us at email@example.com or call us at (860) 486-4830.
You can receive your refund by direct deposit into your checking account if you have enrolled for this service. Please go to our Direct Deposit website for full details.
Online Refund Request Form
Refunds for excess financial aid are processed automatically but only after your financial aid has disbursed to your account. Use this online form only if you have a credit balance that wasn’t caused by excess federal financial aid. Check requests require three (3) business days to process from the time the request is received by the Bursar's Office.
Note: You can receive your refund either by paper check or by direct deposit into your checking account if you have enrolled for this service.
You will receive an email when your check or direct deposit has been processed. It will also appear in the “Refunds” section of your Student Administration online fee bill. If your refund is a paper check you may pick it up at your campus Bursar’s Office the day after you receive the email notification that your refund has been written. If you attend the Torrington, Stamford, or UCHC campus your refund checks will be automatically sent to your home address. If your refund is a direct deposit, you should check your bank account to ensure your bank has processed it. (Note: timing of deposits may vary slightly depending on your bank.)
Students who are picking up a check at the Bursar’s Office must present a photo ID.
