Refunds

General

The Bursar's Office processes refunds via EFT, also known as Direct Deposit. Refunds and overpayments are electronically disbursed to the student's checking or savings account. This makes the refund process quick, easy and more secure than mailing a paper check to the student. Signing up is simple. For more information on how to sign up, click on Direct Deposit. Please note that if you are a student employee of Georgia Tech and have signed up for direct deposit of your paycheck, the Bursar's Office refund process is done on a different system and you must sign up separately per the instructions below or you will not receive your student refund in a timely manner.

Refunds and overpayments are processed Monday through Friday and should be in the students account on the following day or sooner via EFT/Direct Deposit. Again, a student must have signed up for EFT in order to avoid a processing delay.

During registration, refunds resulting from excess Financial Aid disbursements will be processed daily.

Parent PLUS Loan Refunds

All Parent PLUS loan refunds will be mailed directly to the parent's address listed on the loan application. Parent PLUS loan refunds may only be placed in the student's direct deposit account if the Bursar's Office has received an authorization letter stating this request. All authorization letters must include the student's name, GT ID number, and parent's signature. You will only be required to submit the authorization letter once while at Georgia Tech. Once the authorization letter has been received, all Parent PLUS loan refunds will be processed to the student's direct deposit account.
