Note that Student Financial Services does not issue refunds that require you to login to accept.  Refunds are generated by student request, or students will receive advance notification that a refund will be processed on a given date.  Your account balance can be confirmed by logging into Student Center.

If you have a concern regarding the legitimacy of an email regarding your finances at Western, email reg-fees@uwo.ca.  All phishing emails should be deleted immediately.
