Credit Balance Refund

The Bursar Office utilizes an electronic credit balance refund system managed by Tuition Management Systems (TMS). If a student account reflects a credit balance after Federal Student Aid has been applied to current charges or due to overpayment, a refund will be issued. Refunds are not issued until after the class drop period and once the student has started enough classes for that term to be considered ½ time status. Students have the option to authorize the credit to remain on the account, request a partial refund, or transfer available credit to flight accounts by going to myLewis.

Students have the option to receive refunds in the form of a debit card or ACH transfer (direct deposit to checking/savings). Students must enroll online to authorize which method they prefer at lewisu.afford.comIf a preference is not selected, a paper check will be mailed. Once added to the online system, students can visit to view credit balance refund history, update profile, or change method of disbursement.
