Where's My Refund?

PCOM's Office of Financial Aid office provides information regarding the refund process. Visit financial aid's disbursements and refunds page for the estimated disbursement and refund schedule and other important information.

General Information

Student loans and most other aid will electronically disburse toward students' PCOM tuition/fee charges on the first date of enrollment at the beginning of each term. If you borrow more funds than tuition/fees, the PCOM Bursar's Office will then release the remaining "living expense refund" funds to you 7-10 days after your first date of enrollment for the term.

View the Office of Financial Aid's disbursements and refunds page for more details.

Refund Schedule Notes

Direct Deposit

It is strongly recommended that students sign up for direct deposit for their refunds. By signing up for direct deposit, your financial aid refund funds are paid directly to your bank account each term. Direct deposit is generally faster and more secure than receiving a paper check via postal mail.

  • Print out and complete the Direct Deposit Form (PDF).
  • Students will also need to submit a voided check or bank statement in order to verify your bank's routing and account numbers.
  • Return the completed documents to the PCOM Bursar Office:
    • Email BursarOffice@pcom.edu (via your PCOM email address).
    • Or fax to 215-871-6106.
    • Or bring it to our office (Rowland Hall, Suite 203).
