Old Dominion University is now offering electronic refunds (eRefunds) for all refunds. It's fast, easy and the best way to get your money delivered directly to you. The optional program, which was launched in the Fall of 2011, provides all students with the most direct and easiest way to receive their refund *.
* If you have a past due balance, your refund may be delayed (paper checks and eRefunds).
To ensure you receive your eRefund, you must enroll prior to the disbursement of your financial aid. Otherwise, you will receive a check. The University will make every effort to ensure your refund is deposited into your bank account. Unfortunately, there may be times that you will receive a physical check in the mail, due to unforeseen issues.
