Refunds to eligible students will be distributed this week. Please be aware that not all students will receive refunds. If you have a balance due on your account (a positive balance) or if you have not paid a fee or not paid it in full, you will either not receive
a refund or not receive a full refund. If you have a negative balance on your account, you will receive a refund.
If you have questions about the process or about the refund you receive, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students receiving refunds through direct deposit will be notified via email when the deposit is initiated. Students receiving paper checks will be notified via email when their paper check is produced.
Here is how refunds (account credits) are determined:
If you were asked to leave your residence hall, you will receive a prorated (proportional) refund of your Housing Fee and your Commons Fee for March 16, 2020, through May 9, 2020. The Commons Fee is $125 per semester and is for students in suite-style
housing only. Please note that if you incurred room damage charges, that amount will be subtracted from your refund. If you are continuing to reside in campus housing, you will not receive a refund.
If your Flex was part of
your employment with Aramark, contact your supervisor for information.
Crimson Cash doesn’t expire, so in general, refunds are not provided. Seniors and others with special circumstances may apply for a refund through the I-Card office.
You will receive 25 percent of this prorated fee as of March 16, 2020, as some services, including those from the Health Service and from the Counseling Center, are still available to you.
The Student Co-op is the steward of the Student Activity Fee. The Student Co-op provides funding to 110 student groups, which include the Student Cooperative Association, Intercollegiate Athletics, performing and visual arts, Center for Multicultural
Student Leadership and Engagement, club sports, publications, multicultural programs, departmental activities, and student government and advocacy. These groups receive a total of around $4,000,000 in Activity Fee allocations. Before Spring Break,
more than 80 percent of the Activity Fee had been expended by the majority of the departments, clubs, and organizations. Your refund from the Student Activity Fee is calculated based on unused student activity funds, so the refund will be $3.57 per
credit out of the $42 per credit paid. For example, based on an undergraduate student taking 15 credits and paying $630 per semester, the refund would be $53.55.
Students will receive a prorated refund (as of March 16, 2020) for the transportation fee, which is $18 per semester.
Students may request prorated refunds for reserved parking spaces by emailing email@example.com.
A full listing of fees and an explanation of what they cover are available on the Office of the Bursar website.
Thank you for your patience while IUP officials worked to determine a fair and equitable refund process.
Follow these directions to sign up for direct deposit through MyIUP.
Please note that if you have not already signed up for direct deposit, it is likely too late to receive your refund this way. Instead, any refund you are due will be mailed as a paper check to the address IUP has on file for you.
