If your financial aid award exceeds all charges for the term, you
will be issued a rebate check. You will be notified through your TU
e-mail address if you have been issued a rebate check. Rebate checks
cannot be disbursed any earlier than 10 days before the start of the term. Please check the Announcements section for the check disbursement dates.
Please note: if you drop classes from your schedule or withdraw from the university, you may have to repay some or all of your rebate money.

The U.S. Department of Education’s current regulations on the use of Title IV financial aid state that funds awarded for an academic year may not be used to satisfy previous semester/term tuition and fee charges exceeding $200. This applies to all Direct Loan programs, Federal Perkins loans, as well as Federal Pell and SEOG grants.
The regulations will prevent federal financial aid awarded in the current academic year from financing tuition or fees associated with any prior academic year charges. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office at 410-704-4236 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
