Financial Aid Confidential Information Waiver

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law protecting the confidentiality of the student’s records.  In compliance with FERPA, the Office of Financial Aid must have the student’s written authorization to discuss information from their financial aid file to anyone other than a custodial parent(s) that is designated on the current academic year’s FAFSA.  Completing the waiver will allow whomever the student designates to communicate with the Office of Financial Aid.  This waiver will remain on file and in effect until graduation, withdrawal from the college or a written statement to change or eliminate designees.

Tuition Insurance

Springfield College has partnered with GradGuard to provide our families with tuition insurance from Allianz Global Assistance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, fees, room and board for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester.

For more information or to opt-in for this tuition insurance, visit or call 877-794-6603. For claims, please call 888-427-5045. Learn more about Tuition Insurance from GradGuard. 

The deadline to apply for this tuition insurance is the day before the first day of classes each semester.

Students will not see a charge on their SC student eBill. Students and families who opt-in for this tuition insurance will work directly with GradGuard regarding payment.


Planning for Disbursement

Student aid for the summer, fall, and spring terms is disbursed after the add/drop period has ended for that term. Financial aid will only be credited to a student's account after all necessary requirements for the funds are completed and processed, and a student has accepted their aid for the applicable academic year on their My Financial Aid Portal. Students should budget and plan accordingly for immediate financial needs during this period. *Some disbursements may vary based on the start and end date of a student's courses.

If there is a credit balance remaining on a student’s account as the result of aid disbursement, the account must first undergo a review/audit process before a refund can be produced. The review/audit process can take up to 5 business days to complete, but generally takes less time. The Office of Student Accounts works diligently to ensure that students receive their respective refunds as quickly as possible.

All students are required to set up an electronic refund (eRefund) account which will result in students receiving their refunds, (if applicable), via direct deposit into the bank account of their choice. Failure to enroll in eRefund may delay the receipt of student refunds. If you have not yet set up an eRefund account, please review the Credit Balance eRefund Policies” on the Office of Student Accounts Refunds page for instructions.
