Sign up for Electronic Refunds NOW!

No reason to stand in line waiting to pick-up your refund check! To have all refunds sent directly to your checking or savings account, click on "Make a Payment or Manage Refunds" link from your home page of your SIS account. For complete instructions, see the steps below.

Remove Pop-Up Blocker

When signing up for Electronic Refunds, you may want to check if your pop-up blocker is on. You may need to temporarily disable it for the electronic deposit sign-up page to appear. **Remember to replace your pop-up blocker after you have completed making your online electronic payment.

How Does It Work?

Once you have signed up for Electronic Refunds, you will receive an email notification to your UW-Green Bay email account every time a refund is sent to your bank account.

Once you have enrolled in Electronic Refunds this will be in effect the entire time you are a student at UW-Green Bay or until you "un-enroll" from electronic refunding.  **NOTE: If your banking information changes, you will need to update your account information on the Electronic Refund page. If we are notified by our bank that your account information is incorrect, this could result in a two week delay of receiving your refund as a paper check.

Other Options

If you do not wish to set-up electronic deposit, a paper check will print and available one week after date refund was process on your SIS account.  Paper checks are to be picked up by students at the Cashiering window in the Bursar's office. Student MUST present photo ID when picking up paper refund check.  Paper checks not picked up within 21 days of the check date will be mailed to the home address on file in SIS.
