Students with a credit balance (a negative sign "-" before the Amount Due under Current Account Status, in other words -$15.00) will have a refund issued if all eligibility criteria is met. Please sign up for direct deposit. It is the safest and most secure way to receive your refund. If you do not sign up for direct deposit, please make sure your address is accurate through the Wings Express personal information tab.
Stop payments on refunds not received take up to 15 business days from mailing date to reprocess.
Sign up for direct deposit through Wings, Wings Express and the Student Fees link. Select the “eRefunds” tab once you reach the ecommerce system. Step-by-step instructions are available on the FAQ page under the “How do I?” tab.
Most financial aid will be disbursed to your student account ten days before the start of the term. Generally, refunds from excess financial aid will be sent by direct deposit or by check to the student by the end of the first week of classes provided all requirements have been met.
Students can deposit excess loan monies on their Wright1 Card Flex account by going to Wings and selecting the Academics tab, Wright1 Card Services, Card Deposit Using Financial Aid. If this option is not available, deposits from financial aid can be made at Raider Connect.
If the student’s account has a credit balance and the Parent PLUS Loan has an unused amount, the excess amount is mailed directly to the parent/borrower.
