If it cannot be refunded to the credit/debit card, a check will be issued to the address provided on the form. A check can take up to 8 weeks to arrive once processed.

    Yes. The online FSUCash transaction is conducted via a secure server and your data is encrypted during transmission. You can be assured that your information is protected.

    I tried to make a deposit and it didn’t go through to my card but charged my bank account. What should I do?
