Issuing Refunds at UD

Issuing Refunds at the University of Dallas

Each week the University of Dallas reviews student accounts for credit balances. Those accounts found to have a credit balance are flagged and audited to determine if the credit balance belongs to the student. All credit balances that belong to students or other qualified third parties are then processed for disbursement. The funds are disbursed through the UD Refund platform powered by BankMobile to be delivered to the student according to the method chosen by the student.

Funding for the Title IV programs is received by EFT. Funds received by EFT are posted to the correct student account within three days (3) of notification of receipt of the funds. Student Account Services will then have the credit balance disbursed to the UD Refund Program powered by BankMobile within fourteen days (14) from the time the credit is posted to the student account. The refund will then be disbursed by BankMobile to the student using the method chosen by the student.

UD Refund Program

UD Refund Program – The University of Dallas now issues financial aid and credit balance refunds through the UD Refund Program powered by BankMobile. BankMobile is contracted as a third-party servicer to make the refund process quicker, easier, and more secure for the students.

When a student enrolls at the University of Dallas, he or she is issued, by mail, a refund selection kit with a personal code. Your personal code serves as a personal identifier to BankMobile and enables you to select your refund choice. Students will also receive an email containing their personal code and either code can be used to select a refund preference.  Please visit to select a refund preference. 

How to Receive Your Refund

Choices include:

DEPOSIT TO AN EXISTING ACCOUNT – Money is transferred to an existing account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school. Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.

DEPOSIT TO A BANKMOBILE VIBE CHECKING ACCOUNT – If you open a BankMobile Vibe checking account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school.

*Important Notice:  While BankMobile does not charge pin based transaction fees, monthly fees or have minimum balance requirements, certain fees apply to certain optional usages of the Vibe Account. Fees can be avoided by following the guidelines described by BankMobile and using only the services listed as free on the BankMobile fee schedule. You can see more information on the Vibe Account at
