Credit Balance Refunds/Financial Aid/Wire Transfers

Students who have financial aid in excess of charges will have a refund processed after their financial aid has disbursed. In an effort to meet University sustainability goals and increase efficiency, Student Financial Services has transitioned its refund policy to Direct Deposit only. This refund delivery method will be effective immediately. To setup Direct Deposit, sign into OPUS and from the Student homepage, select the Financial Account tile > Direct Deposit. This one-time setup will allow any eligible financial aid or overpayment refunds to be deposited directly into a savings or checking account of your choice. Failure to complete this setup may result in a check processing fee. In addition, all paper checks will be mailed to a “home” or permanent address. They will not be sent to an Emory P.O. Box and cannot be picked up in the office. Failure to sign up for direct deposit will further delay the receipt of your funds.

In a continuing effort to provide better service to students, Western Union Business Solutions has been selected by the University as its student payment processor for timely transmission of funds from abroad. This process is the BEST method of paying your tuition and mandatory charges to Emory in your own currency.

Student Financial Services does not recommend or encourage using a bank wire transfer unless the currency is not available through the WUSB menu.

Bank wires take more time, are more costly, are difficult to track and thus, can result in missing deadlines for payment. Please do not consider a bank wire until you have reviewed the WUSB payment solution.

To easily arrange a Western Union Business Solutions “Bank to Bank Transfer”, sign into OPUS and from the Student homepage, select the Financial Account tile > Make A Payment > Foreign Currency Payments. On the tab under Payment Options, you will see a link that takes you to the Western Union/Emory Business Solutions payment website.
