1.When is my fall/spring aid going to disburse / refund?
It is important to understand that there is a difference between disbursement and refunds and they occur at two different times.
Disbursement = when your financial aid is sent to Student Financial Services to pay your bill.
Refund = when Student Financial Services processes and sends your refund.
Timeline of events before the semester starts
Federal Regulations state that financial aid must wait until 10 days before the start of the semester (Fall then Spring) to begin disbursing money to pay your account. Student Financial Services will then begin the refund process. Student Financial Services states that refunds will be completed by the end of Regular Registration.
Timeline of events during the semester
Financial aid loans, grants and scholarships are posted to student accounts on a daily basis. Any amount owed on the student account is deducted from financial aid before a refund is processed. Refunds are processed daily during registration periods and normally each Tuesday and Thursday during the remainder of the semester. Students having refunds processed during Fall & Spring registration periods should expect to see their refund by the last day of Regular Registration.
2.How often do you process refunds?
Refunds are processed daily during registration periods and normally each Tuesday and Thursday during the remainder of the semester. Students having refunds processed during Fall & Spring registration periods should expect to see their refund by the last day of regular registration. Students use their UNT Debit card to select their refund preference. For more information please go to UNT Debit card.
3.How can I determine if my refund has been processed?
Please review your student account online at my.unt.edu. Select the "Account Balance" link under the "Finances" tab. click on the "Term Summary" tab to choose the appropriate semester. Choose "Account Detail." You will see an itemized list of your charges and payments. A refund will show as "Refund Processed" at the bottom of the page.
Please remember that during the first disbursements of a semester, the refund process may take several days to complete. Students having refunds processed during Fall & Spring registration periods should expect to see their refund by the last day of regular registration.
4.Can I pick up my refund in your office?
No, all refunds are processed through BankMobile, a financial services company. For more information see our website http://sfs.unt.edu/refunds.
5.I want to receive my refund quicker than waiting for it to be mailed. What can I do?
The fastest way to receive a refund is to choose Easy Refund into your Bank Mobile Vibe account. Students use their UNT Debit card to select their refund preference. Please log on to https://bankmobilevibe.com/ for more information.
6.What address is used for refund checks that are mailed?
Your mailing address is used for mailing refunds. You can update or change your preferred address online at my.unt.edu.
7.I have moved and my refund check was mailed to the wrong address. What should I do?
You should update your address online at my.unt.edu, and log on to UNT Debit card to update your address with Bank Mobile. Students should call Bank Mobile at 1-877-327-9515 to stop payment on a check dated over 12 days ago and have them reissue the check.
8.How does my parent sign up for electronic refunds?
Parent loans are sent to the parent through the mail by BankMobile, unless the parent designated it be sent to the student. Then the disbursement will be sent based upon the preference designated by the student.

To change your ACH refund preference, please log into your online profile using your email address and password at https://bankmobilevibe.com/. Choose the second refund option listed - ACH transfer (to other bank) - then print, sign and mail an ACH activation form with your updated information to Bank Mobile.
10.Why did I receive a refund check for a small amount?
The refund may include a credit for a course fee that was reduced from a previous semester. Some of the course fees were reduced after it was determined the entire amount charged was not needed to fund the course. Please contact the Student Financial Services office at 940-565-3225 or firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries into your refund.
11.My aid is on my account summary, why hasn't my refund processed?
A refund can only be processed if the aid has disbursed and moved from the anticipated aid category to financial aid category. Student Financial Services typically processes refunds on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However that schedule can change based on the time of the semester. For example, when financial aid disburses in mass at the beginning of each semester Student Financial Services processes refunds more frequently.
If you feel that a refund should process to your account please check your my.unt.edu for "to do" items, holds or messages. You may also visit or call financial aid 940-565-2302 or Student Financial Services 940-565-3225 for additional assistance.
12.Why do I owe charges even though I have received a refund?
Certain fees cannot be covered by federally funded financial aid. These include the Installment Plan fee, the Short Term Loan Origination, and late fees. It is possible that a student may owe a balance if they have made schedule changes after a refund was issued. Additionally, there are situations when financial aid must retract aid and that can result in a balance due.

We will not be posting your Texas Tomorrow payment for the summer semester to your student account unless you notify us.

Students should bring the Exemption certificate to Student Financial Services located in Room 105 of the Eagle Student Services Center at the Denton campus. The exemption must be used for the first regular session (Fall/Spring) immediately following graduation from high school.
12.Why is the SFH Hazlewood service indicator hold on my account?
As a potential Hazlewood recipient this hold is on your account for the following reason. Per changes in the State of Texas Education Code and in an effort to "Go Green", UNT offers an electronic agreement that when read and accepted will take the place of filling out a Hazlewood application for returning students each year. The original application is still required to be filled out prior to your first semester at UNT as a Hazlewood student, but after being accepted into the exemption program an electronic agreement will take the place of additional yearly applications. This agreement is to be read and accepted prior to registration each semester in order for you to receive the exemption.
13.What if I don’t agree with the information in the SFH Hazlewood agreement?
If any of the pertinent information from your original application has changed, or the eligibility for the exemption is in question, please contact a Hazlewood representative at 940-565-3225.
14.What if I don’t want to agree to the information in the SFH Hazlewood agreement?
