The options for obtaining financial aid refunds are:

  1. Direct deposit. Refunds will be direct deposited after the 5th class day.  Beginning Fall 2021, all students must use direct deposit.
  2. Mail. Refunds will be mailed. Students must verify their correct mailing address in Lobo Online.  Beginning Fall 2021, all students must use direct deposit.  Printed checks and refunds by mail will no longer be available in Fall 2021.  Students must have a bank account to which funds can be directly deposited.

Financial Aid refunds will be processed on Tuesdays of each week, with the exception of holidays and university closures.

Direct deposits will be sent to the student’s bank the following business day of the the processing date. Funds are usually available in your bank within 24 to 72 hours depending on your individual institution.

The University has negotiated with our local banks to provide free banking services to Sul Ross State University students.  Use your Student ID when creating your account to access these free banking services.
