Students who have been overpaid will be responsible to return funds.
While we make every effort to cause the least amount of error, overpayments regardless of the cause, will be the responsibility of the student. 

Students may only receive payment from one institution at a time.
In some instances, due to attendance during summer terms or transferring from another school, some students may receive cross overpayments due to a delay in reporting from the prior school. When this occurs the student will be required to repay any overpayment.​
