It is imperative that students keep their personal information current, whether choosing direct deposit or mail. Failure to do so could substantially delay the receipt of their disbursement. Students can update their personal information in Demographic Self-Service (DSS) at the home page of my.unm.edu. Bank information can be accessed through LoboWeb and the student’s UNM Account Suite.
During the first few weeks of each semester, the Bursar’s Office concentrates on getting financial aid disbursements processed first. If a student has another type of refund due during this period (i.e. book refund, tuition refund, etc.), they should contact the Cashier’s Office in person or by phone (925-8520) and ask them to expedite their refund.
Mastercard/Visa card refunds are credited to the charge card.
