Direct Deposit with Cashnet
The University of Baltimore offers a direct deposit feature for student refunds. This is a free feature that allows students to receive their refunds in a secure, seamless way. All UBalt students are eligible to enroll in direct deposit students refunds. This service is offered through our Cashnet vendor. Enrollment is easy and will take about five minutes of your time. Be sure to have your routing and account number available for your checking or savings account. Students have the ability to update their account information or withdraw from direct deposit at any time.
Typically, students receive their refund approximately 7-8 business days from the date listed in their MyUB portal. The date can be viewed by clicking "My Student Center" and then clicking "Account Inquiry."

Paper Check by State of Maryland
For students that do not enroll for direct deposit, refunds are mailed from Annapolis to the LOCAL address listed in your Student Center. Typically, students receive their refund approximately 10 business days from the date listed next to the Refund entry on the Account Inquiry screen. Once a refund is issued, the state will not allow a stop payment to be made for 30 days. Please be sure your address is always up to date with the University.
You can track the status of your refund by logging into the Maryland General Accounting Division's Online Services Center. To use this site, register as a vendor using your tax payer ID number or your social security number. The University of Baltimore agency code required to view the refund status is R28. You may not use the service center to track the status of a reissued refund.
Enrollment changes or additional charges (i.e. parking or bookstore credit) completed after your refund has been processed will generate a bill and result in a balance due to the University. Please review your student account periodically.
