Financial Aid Refunds
Initial financial aid refunds will be released approximately 2 weeks following the start of a term (following the drop/add period) for students who meet all eligibility requirements. Students must submit a refund request form to request a refund. To receive your refund faster, sign up for direct deposit through Foxlink.
If you do not have direct deposit, your check will be mailed within 2 days of the date the refund is noted on your bursar account on FoxLink. Refund checks for A&S/ CPS students will be delivered to the campus mailbox unless otherwise designated. Please remember, once the check is mailed, Rollins College has no control over how long the post office takes to deliver it to you.
Students with a signed Title IV authorization will need to submit a Refund Request Form to receive a refund. Otherwise, their credit balance will be held on the account for future use. Unless requested sooner, these credits will be released at the end of the aid year.
College Refund Policies
If a student withdraws or is otherwise separated from the College prior to the beginning of a term, a full refund for the term will be made, subject to the exclusions for non-refundable amounts. After a term has started, a withdrawal requires the completion a withdrawal form, which is signed by the student. The completed form must be submitted to the Dean of Student Affairs no later than 10 business days following the last date of attendance. Eligibility for credit to the student account is measured according to the effective date of withdrawal. The effective date of withdrawal is the last day of verified class attendance or student presence on campus, if the withdrawal request is made no later than 10 business days following the last date of attendance. If the student fails to submit the withdrawal form within 10 days of the last date of attendance, the effective date of withdrawal is defined as the date on which the College receives the withdrawal form. If a student withdraws, or is separated from the College for any reason other than a medical disability after the start of the term, a credit will be made to his or her account according to the following schedule:
Effective Date of Withdrawal for Tuition Credit Withdrawal Date
|Prior to the second week of class||80%|
|Prior to the third week of class||60%|
|Prior to the fourth week of class||40%|
|Prior to the fifth week of class||20%
Correspondence from the Bursar's Office (including monthly billing statements) will be sent to the student's official College '@rollins.edu' email account. Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with College-related communications.
