  • If there are funds left over after the bill is paid in full, a financial aid refund is generated. 
  • All students receiving financial aid refunds must register with Nelnet.
    - Log into the WINGS Student Center
    - Go to the Finances section

  • Direct deposit into the student's bank account is recommended.
  • It is important that students set up their refund preference to ensure their refund can be processed.
  • If a parent borrowed a Federal Parent PLUS loan on their student's behalf, they would have indicated on the Parent PLUS Loan application whether the student should receive any refund or if the refund should be processed as a paper check and mailed to the parent.
