ZOT Account Refunds
Before a credit balance refund is released to a student from the ZOT Account, the student must first select a disbursement method. Students have the option to have a check mailed, or direct-deposited into a bank account.
How to: Sign-in to your ZOT Account to make your selection using “DEFT” (Disbursements – Electronic Funds Transfer).
Release of Funds
Credit balances resulting from an overpayment are generally refunded to the student within 10 business days.
Credit balances resulting from excess Financial Aid Funds may not be released prior to the first day of each academic quarter. After each quarter begins, refunds of excess Financial Aid Funds are generally released within a few days. (See Registrar’s Academic Calendar.)
Parent PLUS Loan Refunds
Credit balances resulting from a Parent PLUS are only released by mail to the parent named on the loan. The mailing address for Parent PLUS Loans must be established with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
Lost Checks | Rejected EFTs
If a refund check was lost or mailed to the wrong address, or if your EFT was rejected at your bank, contact Financial Services at 949.824.7310 to have the check reissued.
