Getting Your Refund

Trinity issues student refunds by direct deposit and paper check. Trinity partners with Nelnet, an outside processor, to issue refunds.

Selecting your Refund Option

Students can select their refund options through logging into Self-Service.  Click on the “Finances” tab, then choose ‘Make a Payment’. You will be asked to sign in again, then redirected to “Quikpay Payments and Refunds”. Click on “Manage Refunds”, then click on “Edit Refund Method”.

Once there, follow the on-screen prompts to update your refund information.  Students may select to have their refunds direct deposited into their checking or savings account, or to receive a paper check mailed to their address on record or another address that they enter. Once your refund method has been updated, you should receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, go back to the “Manage Refunds” page to confirm the change or contact QuikPay customer service at 1-888-470-6014 for assistance. If you have any questions on how to access your profile or make changes to your refund method, please contact the Trinity Business Office at

Direct Deposit

The easiest and most efficient way to receive your student refund is to sign up for direct deposit within Self-Service.  Please be sure that you correctly enter your routing and account number into the system.  If the information is incorrect, a direct deposit cannot be processed for you, and you will instead be mailed a paper check.

Direct deposits are typically in your bank account within 3 business days of the refund date shown in your Self-Service account.  You will also receive an email to your Trinity student email address that shows the date the refund was processed by Trinity.

Paper Checks

If you do not log into Self-Service to make a refund option, the default option is that the refund will be mailed to the address that is listed within Self-Service.  You can also log into Self-Service and select the paper check option, and change the address that you want the check to be mailed to.

Checks typically arrive within 7-10 business days of the refund date shown in Self-Service.  You will also receive an email from Trinity stating the date that your refund was processed.  Please note that checks are not able to be picked up at Trinity.

If it has been longer than the time period specified above, please contact the Trinity Business Office at (202) 884-9527.
