Financial Aid and Loan Refunds
The Office of the Bursar will be distributing financial aid and loan refunds on February 16th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and February 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Room 218 of Savitz Hall. Students are encouraged to check their Student Self-Service accounts to determine if they are eligible for a financial aid refund. For those students who cannot pick up their refunds on these designated dates, refunds may be picked up at the Office of the Bursar on the ground floor of Savitz Hall. Regular office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on most Wednesdays. Please be sure to bring your Rowan ID card when picking up your refund.
If you would prefer to have your refund direct deposited into your checking account, please take advantage of our eRefund service ... the fastest, safest, and most convenient way of receiving a refund. To enroll, go to rowan.edu/epay, log in with your student ID and PIN, click on "e-Refunds" from the top menu, and click "Setup Account." (NOTE: Only standard checking accounts are accepted.) Please be sure to verify your account number carefully to avoid any delays in receiving your refund. You will be notified via your Rowan e-mail when your eRefund has been processed, and your funds should be in the designated checking account within three (3) business days.
What is the 1098-T form?
The 1098-T form contains information that colleges and universities are required to issue for the purpose of determining a student’s eligibility for the American Opportunity Tax Credit and Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. Rowan University reports charges for amounts billed to students for qualified tuition and related expenses, prior year adjustments, and grants and scholarships.
By spreading payments out over a period of five months, students can budget for their tuition bill and avoid a large, lump sum payment at the beginning of the semester. Budgeting in this manner can also reduce the amount of loans/financial aid needed, thus reducing student indebtedness.
The installment plan is interest-free, and plan due dates are as follows:
To enroll in the Deferred Payment Plan:
Late fees are assessed three (3) calendar days after each due date, as applicable.
Please note that the deferred payment plan does NOT apply to previous semester balances. Should you need to make arrangements for a payment plan for a prior semester balance, please contact the Office of the Bursar at (856) 256-4150. IMPORTANT: Payment plans for prior semesters will not remove a Denial of Service hold until the entire past due debt is paid in full.
All notices concerning bills will be sent to the student’s Rowan e-mail account.
Effective July 2015, students paying their tuition bill with a credit or debit card will be assessed a non-refundable credit card convenience fee, currently 2.75% of the transaction.
Rowan University is committed to offering its students a comprehensive array of financing options to pay for their tuition and associated fees, including room and board. However, the rising cost of transaction charges has made it fiscally impossible for Rowan University to continue to absorb these expenses. In order to continue accepting credit or debit cards, the University must pass the service charges on to the cardholder.
Payments via cash, check, or online deductions from a checking account will not be subject to this fee.
