Financial aid disbursements are applied to students’ accounts on most Wednesdays and refunds are processed on Fridays. To learn more about our procedures, please visit www.owens.edu/financial_aid/understanding.
Financial Aid refund information:
Students who meet all eligibility requirements, including attendance, and who have financial aid remaining after tuition, fees, and book voucher purchases are paid, will receive a refund. Students whose aid is not ready for the first disbursement will receive their refund at a later date. For details, click here.
Please note that once you see a notice on your Ozone account that says Refund as Selected there are additional steps that must take place before the funds are available. If you are expecting a refund, you should receive it in the manner you selected within 3-5 business days after a refund appears on your student account.
If you have questions about your financial aid refund amount or timing please contact the Student Service Center at (567) 661-2387, or email your Student Financial Services Advisor by using your Owens email account.
Third Party refund information:
If you have a Third Party, such as Veterans Benefits, TAA/WIA, or some other company paying for part or all of your tuition bill, you will experience an estimated 7 business day delay in the processing of your refund. If you have questions about either the amount or the timing of this type of refund, please email email@example.com using your Owens email account as Student Financial Services is not able to provide specific details for Third Party billing.
Part of Term Z Class Drop/Withdrawal:
If you have had to contact Student Financial Services for help dropping a Part of Term Z (flex term) class during the semester, any refund will be delayed by one week.
