Refunding for the Fall 2022 semester has begun.  Students can check on an available refund by visiting the Finances page within the Alfred State portal.  Students who have opted to receive their refund electronically (ACH/Direct Deposit) need not take any additional steps.  If you have not already done so, you can enroll in this method for future refunds by visiting the Finances portal page, and then selecting the E-REFUND icon.  This is the fastest and most convenient way to receive your refund!


For students not enrolled in E-REFUND, checks are available in the Student Records and Financial Services Office located in the Agriculture Science Building. Students attending the Wellsville Campus can pick up their refund checks at the Zero Energy House.  Students will be required to present their Student ID card before receiving their check. Refund checks for Wellsville students are sent from the Alfred campus to the Wellsville campus, and as a result, may take a few more days. 


Refunds for students studying online or at the Northland campus will be mailed.


Any refund checks not picked up after 5 business days will be sent to the student’s home address that is on file.  If students prefer to have their check sent to their home address, please email the Student Records and Financial Services Office at


Please Note: Refunds are based on enrollment status.  If students are enrolled in part of term courses, their full refund will not be available until students reach 12 credit hours for the semester. Additionally, Refunds may be issued as funds are received and as a result students may receive multiple refunds throughout the semester.


If you have any questions regarding a refund check, please email the Student Records and Financial Services Office email address at
