Overpayments made in check will be put on student accounts as an "advance". These overpayments will not automatically refund. Rather, a student must request the overpayment to be refunded after 10 business days have passed.
It is necessary for the University to allow 10 business days for the check to clear. If a student would like his/her refund prior to the 10 business days waiting period, s/he must provide documentation from the bank verifying that the particular check has cleared.
