Student Refunds


 Higher One


Students who are expecting loan checks will have an anticipated loan amount posted to their account IF all necessary paperwork has been processed. Students receiving loans will have their refund payments sent to HigherOne. The first balance payments for Summer 2016 will be sent electronically to HigherOne on June 3, 2016, provided federal funds are received by Southeastern from the U.S. Department of Education. Students whose lenders send only paper checks must come to the cashier's section to endorse those checks beginning June 6, 2016. All subsequent refunds will be sent electronically to HigherOne beginning on June 8, 2016. In order to more efficiently process refunds, all types of refund payments will be sent to HigherOne and processed according to the refund method the student has elected. In order to reduce delays, students should log into and make a refund method selection. All students will be better served in this manner. For this reason, it will be very important for students to be sure that their MAILING address is correct on the system. Address correction instructions can be found on the Office of Records & Registration website.
