Step 4: Understanding Your Charges & Credits

Screenshot of the Account Summary by Term page with an arrow pointing to the account balance and Here you can see your Account Balance. An amount with a minus (-$300) is credit. (The University giving you a refund) An amount with no symbol is a balance that you owe.

On this page, you will be able to determine whether you have funds that can be transferred into Red Hawk Dollars. To transfer funds, you need to have credit available in your account.

A credit in your account would be reflected in your “Account Balance.” If you have money that is available to be transferred into Red Hawk Dollars, you will see a minus sign next to an amount in that section. For example, if you see “-$300.00” in the last section that says “Account Balance”, then that means you have $300.00 available to be transferred into Red Hawk Dollars.

If you choose not to transfer those funds, they will be sent to you in the form of a refund from the University through either check via mail or direct deposit.
