Where can I find more information about tuition account refunds?

Refund Information

Saint Joseph's University offers refunds to students for the following reasons:

  • When a student's total payments (from federal aid, scholarships, out-of-pocket payments, etc.) exceed their total charges.
  • When a student has paid their tuition account and withdrawals from courses during the refund period.

When a Student's Total Payments Exceed Their Total Charges

Refunding of credit balances from federal aid will begin after the conclusion of the add/drop period each semester. For refunds from an out-of-pocket overpayment, it is SJU policy to wait 30 days from the time the payment is posted to process the refund.

When your account balance turns to $0, your refund is being processed. The refund process will complete within 2 business days. If you have direct deposit, you will receive an email notification once this is done. If you are not enrolled in direct deposit, a paper check will be mailed to your permanent address on file the following week. We highly encourage all students to enroll in direct deposit through MySJU, as this will aid you in getting your refund faster. For more information: How do I set up Direct Deposit?  If your bank is not listed in the drop down in the direct deposit set up, please send a copy of a voided check to bursarsoffice@sju.edu or mail a voided check to Bursars Office, 5600 City Avenue, Barbelin 122, Philadelphia, PA 19131.


When a Student Withdrawals from Courses During the Refund Period

There are designated policies surrounding tuition, housing and meal plan reversals. These policies are outlined in the policy section of our web site which can be found by clicking What is the SJU tuition refund policy?.
