Refunds refer to the excess funds remaining on a student’s account after payments have been applied to charges (tuition & fees).  Refund processing varies and is based on the type of payment method.  Generally, SLCC issues refunds based on the last form of payment.

  • Online credit card payments are returned to the same credit card used to make the payment.  If the payment date exceeds 6 months a refund is issued via check or direct deposit.
  • Online debit card payments are refunded via check or direct deposit.
  • Paper, Cashier or Electronic Check payments are refunded by check or direct deposit.  Check payments are subject to a 2-week waiting period before the refund is issued.  The two weeks is calculated based on the date the check posted to the student account.
  • Third party payments are returned to the issuing entity/individual, unless otherwise directed by the third-party.  A third party is a person, organization or entity other than the student.
  • In-Person/Over the phone credit/debit card payments are returned via check or direct deposit, or can be credited back to the same card, by a cashier at any SLCC cashier location.
  • Title IV Federal Financial Aid payments are refunded via check or direct deposit.


  • Mail:  Refund checks are mailed to the mailing address recorded on the student’s account at the time the check is processed. It is the Students responsibility to update and maintain their current address in MySLCC. Failure to do so can result in a delayed refund.
  • Direct Deposit:  Students can have refunds deposited directly into their bank account by signing up for direct deposit.  You can sign up for direct deposit in SLCCPay+. A link to SLCCPay+ is located on the tuition and financial aid webpage accessed within your MySLCC account. Further direction on using SLCCPay+ can be found here.
  • SLCC does not hold refund checks for students to pick up in person.
