Penn State will begin issuing room and board refunds for students

Alert Date: Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Alert Status: Current
Alert:

Penn State students with Housing and Food Service contracts will soon begin receiving prorated refunds for their room and board fees.

The refunds, which were announced on March 16, will be processed during the first week of April for students who did not return to campus for the remote-learning period. Refunds for students who departed campus after the start of the remote-learning period will be processed starting April 13.

Information will be sent to students’ Penn State email accounts, and refund amounts have been posted on students’ eLiving dashboard.

Penn State recommends that students enroll in eRefund if they have not done so yet. eRefund is the fastest, safest and most convenient way to receive a refund from the University if a credit balance remains on the account. More information on the refund policy can be found at https://bursar.psu.edu/refund-policy

PHISHING SCAM TARGETING STUDENTS - JANUARY 2020

Alert Date: Thursday, January 9, 2020
Alert Status: Current

Please beware of any emails requesting that you click on a link to provide your login information. Phishing scams can have serious financial consequences if you surrender your login credentials. As a reminder: Penn State will NEVER ask you for your password, social security number, or other sensitive information via email.

Please see a sample of  the phishing attempt at: https://security.psu.edu/2019/12/30/important-notification/
