*If you have excess financial aid (a Credit Balance, not Anticipated Aid) for living expenses, books and supplies, computer, etc. on your tuition account, the Office of Student Accounts will automatically disburse your financial aid credit to your bank account if you have Direct Deposit. If you have not signed up for Direct Deposit, a paper check will be mailed to you. We refer to this process as the Automatic Refund Process, which is available for the fall, winter and spring quarter.

The Automatic Refund Process is only active during the first few weeks, on specific dates, at the beginning of each quarter (these dates will be emailed to you before the beginning of each quarter). If your loan funds disburse to your tuition account after these dates, and you are eligible for a refund, you will either have to request the refund online via CAESAR or contact the Office of Student Accounts at 847-491-5224 to request your refund.

Note: You can sign up for direct deposit on CAESAR at: https://caesar.northwestern.edu/

To apply, use the following path: For Students > Financial Services > View My Account > Direct Deposit

**Since the Automatic Batch Refund process does not begin until Fall quarter, 1Y MBA, MMM, and MSMS Students would request their financial aid refund via CAESAR or contact the Office of Student Accounts at 847-491-5224.
