2020 Room and Board Refund Update

Last Updated on

As communicated in a prior email from President Machtley, Bryant University will be crediting your student account for room and board charges for those days that students were not able to return to campus after spring break, from March 15th until the end of the semester.   This credit will be applied to your student account in the upcoming week.

The housing and meal plan credit was calculated by using a daily rate for the appropriate type of housing and meal plan in which you were enrolled.  Students receiving institutional aid to cover room and board charges will be credited proportionally after adjusting for this aid.  Additionally, if students received a permit to stay on campus after spring break, charges will be adjusted for those additional days.     

If the adjustment results in a credit balance on the student account, the credit can remain on the account and be applied toward charges for next semester.  Alternately, a refund can be requested by following the instructions below:

  • Select Banner from the Quick Launch dropdown menu on the My Bryant Portal
  • Log in using your My Bryant Portal login credentials
  • Select Student Services and Financial Aid
  • Select Refund Request Form
  • Complete form and click Submit Request

If you wish to be issued a refund, we recommend that a direct deposit refund request be submitted in order to expedite the refund process.  If applying for an electronic refund, please validate the bank account information on the Student Account Center under the refund tab.  If you are unsure how to do this, please watch this instructional video on how to apply for the refund:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spXpWIYdcEw

If you are requesting a paper check, please allow additional time versus the direct deposit refund method. The Bursar’s Office will be processing refund requests as quickly as possible and we appreciate your patience during this busy time.  If you have specific questions, you can contact the Bursar’s Office at (401) 232-6030 or, by email, at bursar@bryant.edu.
