Refunds

When refunds of tuition charges are due as in the case of withdrawal or canceled classes, the Bursar’s Office will refund any amount due to the student. Refunds are processed 3-4 weeks after the start of the semester.

*Note:  Financial Aid Refund Schedule – Loans will be disbursed beginning approximately 4 weeks after the start of the semester; Grants will be disbursed around Easter (Spring) or Thanksgiving (Fall).

Refunds are issued in the form of a check or ACH direct deposit via Nelnet.  Please note that direct deposit is the preferred method of disbursement since it is faster and more secure.  Students who elect to receive a check should be aware that the check is from Wells Fargo Bank and will be mailed to their permanent / local address on file.  Check payments are usually delivered about 3 – 14 business days after refund processing day versus the 1 – 2 business days for an ACH direct deposit.

To Select Your Refund Method:

  • Log into your student account at http://myfm.fmcc.edu/*. (You can also access Self Service through MyFM on the FM main webpage.) *(If you have not received your student account login information, please contact the Registrar’s office at registrar@fmcc.suny.edu)
  • Click on “Finances – View Bill / Make A Payment”. *(If this tab does not appear, please try using a different browser)
