Credit Balance Refund Schedule

Once aid is disbursed into the applicant's university account, it will be credited toward any outstanding tuition fees or charges. If there is any remaining credit balance, a refund check will be issued to the applicant via direct deposit into the applicant's checking or savings account according to the schedule below. To complete a Direct Deposit Authorization, the students should log into their myCSUB account, click on Enroll in Direct Deposit, and complete the online form as soon as possible. If you have questions concerning this Authorization, or how to opt out, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services.

Note: Federal regulations prohibit colleges from deducting prior year balances from current year aid. Therefore, prior year balances must be paid by the student with cash, credit, or check.
