If it is discovered that a student has overpaid, a refund will be issued to the student via Higher One. If it is discovered that a student has underpaid, the student or responsible party will be billed. All balances are due immediately.

If a student has reason to believe the College owes him/her a refund, the student should inform the Business Office. In the event a refund is warranted, the College will issue that refund through the proper channels and in accordance with College policy.
