If your billing statement presents a $0 or (-) negative balance, it may be due to Estimated Financial Aid on your account.
Students who have sufficient aid to cover 100% of tuition, fees, room, and board will no longer be required to take action and apply their aid as payment.Estimated Financial Aid is expected to apply to your account once the Financial Aid Office disburses the aid 10 days prior to the start of the semester. For more information, please go to Financial Aid & Scholarships .
IMPORTANT CHANGE: If the amount due on your account is $0 or less and you do not wish to attend the term, you must complete an official withdrawal form with the Registrar's Office. Failure to do so may result in receiving an 'F' for the term.
You can check your balance on the web at the new SBS Billing & Payment site.
Refunds will be credited against outstanding charges, if any. You can check your charges and credits on-line at the SBS Billing & Payments site.
If all charges are paid and you are due a refund, you can receive your refund:
Via EFT directly to your bank account by signing up for eRefunds at the SBS Billing & Payments site.
Via check mailed to the local address you have on file with the Registrar's Office.
Note: If you withdrew (defined as dropping ALL your classes for the semester) and are eligible for a refund, the check will be mailed to your permanent address or direct deposited to your bank.
The refund schedule for dropped classes and withdrawals can be found at www.sbs.txstate.edu
