EKU Refund

You may receive a refund from Student Accounting Services if your account has a credit balance for any of the following reasons:

  • Your applied financial aid exceeds your current charges
  • You have received a refundable credit from University office or department
  • Your account has been overpaid

If you are receiving a refund you must set up your refund preference through EKU Direct > Main Menu > Make a Payment > Electronic Refund > Enter Your Checking Account Information. There is no other way for you to receive your funds without setting up your preference through Touchnet.

Note: You may keep your BankMobile Vibe account as your refund preference although you will still need to log into EKU Direct and enter the banking information as to where your refund monies will be deposited. Contact BankMobile at 1-800-815-5448 for account information.

What are my refund options?


Money is transferred to another account within 3 business days after funds being received. 


If you open a US Bank account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day US BAnk receives funds from your school.

When will I get a refund?

Should the student have a negative balance after Financial Aid is applied to the account, a refund will be generated for the student. Title IV regulations state that in most cases refunds should be processed for students within 14 days of being applied to the student’s University account. An exceptions is when financial aid is applied prior to the start of classes for that term; then it is 14 days after the first day of class. In most cases, students at EKU receive their refunds faster than this time frame.

EKU processes refund files every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (other than university or banking holidays)

Please note you must show a “Refund” and dollar amount in EKUDirect before funds will be released to you. Should your account show a negative balance this does not mean that EKU has processed a refund for you. Your account balance will have to show a zero before funds will be released.

* Even if a student receives a refund from EKU, this does not mean that their University Account is paid in full. Student must check their EKUDirect account to verify that their account is paid. It is the student’s responsibility to pay any outstanding balances with the University.
