Financial Aid Refunds

Types of Financial Aid Refunds

  • Bright Futures and other State Grants
  • Pell and SEOG Grants
  • Student Loans
  • Outside Scholarships
  • Institutional Awards

Financial aid awarded in excess of applicable charges on a student’s account is refunded to the student’s account by the Bursar’s office.  Refunds are processed electronically by direct deposit to the student’s checking account.

Information about Parent PLUS loan refunds is found here.


Students are required to sign up for Direct Deposit to receive refunds.

Please complete the online direct deposit authorization by logging into ONE.UF and selecting:

  • Campus Finances (Bursar) card > Direct Deposit-Refunds
  • Direct deposits will be transmitted to the checking account of the banking institution designated by the student or parent PLUS borrower.

This will ensure your refund reaches you as quickly as possible.

  • Direct Deposit refunds are processed two times per week. This is the fastest and most secure method for receiving refunds.
