Distribution of Refund Checks
All refund checks are issued by Student Financial Services and distributed by
the Office of the Cashier. If a student is due a refund check, Student Financial
Services will issue the check and notify you via letter that a check has been
issued and is ready for pick-up. For your information, Student Financial
Services has the ability to issue a refund directly to the studentís bank
account in the same manner as the direct deposit of payroll.
Loan (Stafford & Optional) Check Endorsements
Students can endorse their Stafford loan check and/or optional loan check
at the Cashierís Office. The check will be applied to the studentís account
Student Bill Payments
Students now have the option of paying their bills directly to the Cashierís
Office instead of routing their payments to the Universityís lockbox provider.
The studentís account will be credited the same day if the payment is received
in the Cashierís Office by 4:30 pm. Any payments received after that time,
credit would be applied to the studentís account the following business day.
SFS offers students net.pay, a service
which enables students to receive their
Penn monthly student account bill statement over the web, and to submit payments
on-line, using an electronic interface with their bank.
Student advances must be approved by Student Financial Services. Once an advance
is approved, the student can obtain their advance at the Cashierís Office
