  • If you originally paid your tuition by a personal check, a bank check, money order, traveler’s check or cash, you should expect a check from our university payable to the account holder. If someone other than the student paid tuition, the check will be payable to that person and be sent to his/her address. You must allow at least 6 to 8 weeks to receive the check.
