Mailing of Aid/Refund Checks
If a student is not signed up for direct deposit, any refund or financial aid checks will automatically be mailed to the student’s local address on file. Students must maintain up-to-date address information on MyUW to avoid any postal delays. Aid checks may take up to 10 business days to reach the student by mail; signing up for direct deposit is strongly encouraged for students to receive funds quickly and safely.
For refunds of parent PLUS loans where the parent has designated that the funds not be sent to the student, a refund check will be sent to the parent address supplied on the Master Promissory Note and PLUS Loan Application.
