- Your permanent home address is located in iROAR under Personal Information. Students are responsible for ensuring an accurate permanent home address is listed in iROAR.
- Refund checks must be cashed in a timely manner. Federal regulations require you to cash federally funded (Title IV) refunds in a timely manner.
- Refund checks must be cashed within 120 days of the issue date.
- If your Title IV refund check is not cashed within 120 days, the check may be canceled and the funds returned to the appropriate loan or grant program.
- If your non-Title IV refund check is not cashed within 120 days, the check may be canceled and the credit forwarded to the S.C. State Treasurer’s Office of Unclaimed Property.
- If payment by check creates a credit balance, the refund is held for seven days to allow for bank processing.
- Any changes to your schedule and/or financial aid after you receive a refund may create a debt. All such debts are subject to collection and must be repaid immediately.
- If you need to request a stop payment and re-issue of your refund check for any reason, please access this Stop Payment Request form. Note: stop payment requests will only be processed fourteen days after the check is issued and may take 5-10 days processing time.
- Any indebtedness to Clemson University will be deducted from your refund before it is sent out.
- In order to authorize Clemson University to use Title IV Financial Aid Funds (Pell Grant, Direct Loans, etc) to cover miscellaneous student billing charges you must complete the Authorization for Non-Allowable Charges.
