As a student at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU), you may have a credit balance on your account when you overpay, drop a course (without financial penalty) or receive additional funding. When this occurs, you are able to request a refund. Please visit MyServiceHub Support: How to Request a Refund for step-by-step instructions.

For students who receive awards funding, refund requests are reviewed by the Student Awards and Scholarships office to make sure that terms and conditions for the awards are still met. Student Financial Assistance (SFA) review refund requests for recipients of government aid funding to check if any funds need to be returned to the issuer of the loan.

Payments made online by credit card will be refunded back to the original credit card. Credit card payments made in person at the ServiceHub, and all other forms of payment, will be refunded by e-Transfer.

Note: The type of refund request you can use is based on your mailing address on file. If this has changed, please update it by following the steps on MyServiceHub Support: How to Update an Address before beginning your refund request.

How to Receive Your Refund

TMU has partnered with PayMyTuition, an electronic payment tool, to complete refunds and awards and scholarship payments to domestic students. This method uses Interac e-Transfer. Refund cheques are no longer used by TMU.

When a refund, award or scholarship is posted to your student account and approved, you will receive an automated email from TMU with details on how to receive your funds.

Refund assessments can take up to 15 business days. Once your refund has been processed, your student account balance will be updated. Due to the approval process needed for all e-Transfer refunds, further instructions and the e-Transfer link will arrive within five to 10 business days from the date of the refund item (named Domestic e-Transfer Refunds) posted in your account.

  1. Once your refund has been assessed (up to 15 business days from the time of your request), you will receive an automated email from TMU informing you that PayMyTuition has been authorized to issue your refund.

  2. PayMyTuition ( will inform you that your Interac e-Transfer email will be issued within the next 24 to 48 hours.

You will have to submit a new refund request if you want the funds returned to you.

    A unique passcode is needed each time you are issued a refund, unless you have arranged a direct deposit (auto deposit) with your financial institution using your university email address. Interac e-Transfer refunds will be sent to your university email.

The Student Financial Assistance (SFA) office does not review refund requests that are $1,500 or less. This means that any refund that is $1,500 or less will be pushed out without assessing the impact of the credit on your OSAP application at the time of refund review.

Once your OSAP application has been reassessed, your file may be flagged as having an overpayment. This means that you have been paid more OSAP funding than you are eligible for. This can happen if you changed programs, your course load, or have added new assets that weren't reported on your OSAP file before. You must pay back the overpayment to the National Student Loans Services Center (NSLSC). 

Please check the status of the funding calculation on your OSAP application regularly so that you can be aware of any overpayments on your account. If an overpayment occurs, the Funding Summary page of your OSAP portal will be updated to show the overpayment amount. You will see this as a negative value. We encourage you to check your OSAP Message Centre regularly as well.

In the event that you do owe money to the NSLSC, it is your responsibility to make a payment directly through your NSLSC portal.


Please read the form instructions carefully before completing the request.
