Maricopa Student Refund Program

To ensure you receive your student refunds, you will need to enroll with Nelnet. Here’s how:

  1. Log into your Student Center at maricopa.edu/students.
  2. Click on the Financial Account tile.
  3. Click on the Manage Refunds link.

Refund options:

  • Direct deposit (ACH) transfer to your bank account

Everyone should enroll, especially if you anticipate receiving a refund for any of the following items:

  • Financial Aid
  • Book Advances
  • Scholarships
  • Cash Payment
  • Check Payment
  • Payment Plan Payments

Note: You must be eligible for a refund. Refunds for credit card payments will continue to be processed back to the original credit card used.


Update your address

To ensure timely processing of your refunds and/or book advance, it’s very important that the address we have on file for you is correct. This is necessary regardless of the refund method selected. To update your address:

  1. Navigate to maricopa.edu/students, and select the Student Center icon.
  2. Click on the Profile tile.
  3. Click on the Addresses link (Left hand side).
  4. If any information is incorrect, please update the information immediately.

You are responsible for keeping your information up-to-date to ensure that your refund is processed in a timely manner.

For more information, check out the Maricopa Refund Policy, or stop by Student Business Services on campus, or call 480-732-7312.

Paper checks are available for students. Checks may take up to 7-14 days to be received, and will be mailed to the address in your Online Student Center. If a stop payment is needed to be placed on a check, the student is responsible for a $25 stop payment fee.

Please note: The $15 registration fee per semester is non-refundable and will not be refunded. In addition, payment plan participants who paid the $25 non-refundable enrollment fee will not be refunded the enrollment fee. You must officially drop or withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period in order to be eligible for a refund of your tuition charges.
