Refund Checks - If a student’s financial aid has been processed, enrolled hours are confirmed, and he/she is eligible for a refund, the Business Office will begin issuing refund checks. Refund checks will be mailed to the student's home address on file at CMU. Students can refer to myCMU to see if there is a credit on their account and eligible for a refund. Students will not receive a refund in time to purchase textbooks, but if they have their financial aid completed, may qualify for a textbook voucher through MBSDirect. See the book voucher information page for details.
