Refunds and Excess Express

Students must sign up for Excess Express, our direct deposit service for student refunds. To sign up for Excess Express, students need to log into their SPIRE account. In the main menu, select Finance and then Excess Express.

You will need to enter an account and routing number of either a checking or savings account. Excess Express FAQs.

Once a student enrolls in Excess Express, refunds will automatically be direct deposited into the designated account. If a student does not enroll in Excess Express, any overpayment will remain on the account and will be applied towards future charges.
