Did you lose your Refund Check?

  • If you lose your refund check, please contact SBS via email or visit our office to request a replacement check.   We will fill out a Declaration of Lost Check and send it to you for signature. A lost check can only be replaced after a student returns the signed Declaration of Lost Check.  Once the signed form is received Student Business Services will begin the process of voiding the lost check and reissuing the replacement check.  This process normally takes about 10 business days.
