Additional Refund Information:

Georgia Southern has a variety of automated processes that occur to create student account refunds. Below are some important points:

– Refunds generated from payments made by check are subject to a 14 day holding period.
– Refunds generated from credit card payments (as determined above) will be refunded to the credit card.
– Parent PLUS Loans: If the parent did not indicate ‘plus to student’ on the application, the refund will be issued to the parent in the form of a check and mailed to the address on the plus application.

“Keep your finances safe by keeping it private. Please be discreet when discussing your refund with others.”
