Important Information!

About Authorizing Your Aid

It is important to know that it is possible to receive a refund, yet still have a balance owed on your student account.

All students must give a one-time authorization to allow their financial aid to pay "educationally-related" charges. These charges include (but are not limited to) parking permits, library fines, childcare expenses, health insurance, and some housing charges.

To authorize your aid to pay these types of expenses, you must click on "Authorize Refund Request" in MyCentral. This link can be found on the Student Services tab.
