Student Accounts

Miscellaneous Account

This is an account separate from the Tuition Account, to which non-tuition expenses may be charged. The University Bookstore, Common Grounds coffeehouse, and Health Center (HC) are a few examples of places where students can charge items or services. Purchases may be paid directly to these services, or can be charged by using an EMU student ID card. Charges made with an EMU ID card will be added to the student’s Miscellaneous Account and must be paid upon receipt of a statement from the Student Accounts Office.

Refund Requests

Please contact the Cashier by phone, email, or in person to request a refund of your credit balance. Refund checks are created every Friday (with the exception of the first week of classes). Requests must be submitted before noon Thursday to receive a check that Friday.

Due to the large amount of activity on student accounts at the beginning of each semester, refunds are not available until after the second week of classes. Refund schedule may change during holidays.

Cashier Services

A cashier is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, to receive payments on account, to cash personal checks up to $75, and to give updated balances on account. Payments (by check) may also be sent through campus mail. For information regarding refunds of credit
balances, please contact the cashier. To contact the cashier call (540) 432-4575.

Personal Funds

The Park View Federal Credit Union, located at Harmony Square Shopping Center, is within walking distance from campus and invites students to open a checking account or an interest-bearing savings account. Please phone (540) 434-6444 or toll free at (888) 900-6444, or stop by the credit union for more information.
