Financial Aid Refund

We will begin processing Refund Checks as financial aid is disbursed, approximately 30 days after the start of the semester. To obtain status of your refund check log on to STCCNet (The Campuswide Portal) and select "View my Bill/Financial Aid or make a payment" under the financial information section. If there is a refund posted to your account a check will be mailed within 14 days.

Refund checks and E-checks

In the absence of a written third party contractual agreement stating otherwise, all refunds will be issued to the student.  An exception is made for Parent Loans requested through Student Financial Services.  Credit card payments will be refunded directly to the credit card if processed within thirty days of the payment.

Get your refunds faster with E-Refunds

STCC students now have the option to receive all refunds (including financial aid) faster and easier by signing up for Electronic Refunds. Instead of mailing a check, an electronic deposit will be made directly to the student's bank account.  This eliminates paper checks and allows students to access their refunded money faster and easier.

How it Works

Once the E-Refund is processed, an email will be sent to the student's STCC email account notifying them that the refund is on its way to their bank account.  Refunds may take up to two business days to settle in a student's bank account.

After a student signs up for the E-Refund option, their bank information will stay in the system and all refunds will be issued to that account.  If a student's banking information changes, they MUST update it through the STCCnet Portal.  Failure to update bank information will delay the refund process. E-Refunds will be rejected and a paper check will be issued. 

Please note: STCC reserves the right to send paper checks instead of E-Refunds at any time.
