Refunds for Adjusted Housing and Dining Charges

Please follow this link to see the email message sent to students on March 25th about refunds of pro-rated charges for housing and dining. Refunds will begin processing on April 2nd.  Students should sign up for direct deposit to ensure they receive any refunds quickly and securely. Students who prefer to apply their refund to future charges should complete and submit this form by no later than April 1st.

Technology Support Fund

To support online instruction, the University will offer financial assistance to students who need access to a computer and/or an internet connection (via a data hotspot). This assistance is available to students who have not previously either 1) received a free laptop from the University as part of the Laptops for Students Program or 2) used the One-Time Computer Expense option.  SFS has established a process by which students can submit a request for financial support to help pay for these technology-related costs. Note: Students should only complete and submit the form below if obtaining a computer or accessing internet presents a financial hardship. This form should NOT be used to upgrade existing computing equipment.
