Award Payments (credit balances)
For students holding awards resulting in a credit balance on the student account.
Wilfrid Laurier University will pay out your award in installments, one at each term, starting with the term you selected on your Notice of Acceptance (or, where no formal notice of acceptance is required, commencing the term in which the funding is held). Such awards would include Tri-Council funding, OGS/QEII, Studentships, Balsillie Fellowships or Studentships (but excludes employment earnings such as Teaching and Research Assistantships).
The award is applied, along with any other scholarships awarded to you by Laurier, against your student account (tuition and incidental fees). Any outstanding payments owed to the University will be deducted at source before a refund is issued to you (by direct deposit) for the balance.
Requesting your credit balance
Starting January 5th, 2015, Laurier will no longer automatically refund the credit balance from your student account.
Students with a credit balance on their student account due to an award or studentships must request a refund using the Business Office online refund request form. Information and procedures can be found here: https://legacy.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=1272&p=5027
