Refunds are issued for students with credit balances beginning with Wednesday of the fifth week of the term and continuing every Friday until the end of the term.  Financial aid, payments or adjustments must be received in the Hattiesburg Business Office by the cut-off date to be considered for refunds the following week.  You may refer to the attached schedule of dates to find the disbursement dates for the 2022-2023 school years.
