Right To Cancel A Federal Loan
You have the right to cancel all or a portion of your federal student loans. If you wish to do so, please send your written request to Financial Aid by mail or email. The cancellation should be received no later than 120 days after the disbursement of your student loan funds to your tuition account as indicated on my.uchicago.edu. Please contact Financial Aid if you have questions.
How Do I Cancel Funds?
If you have received a student loan refund that you no longer need, you should return the loan funds to the Maroon Financial Credit Union. Ask that they credit your tuition account because you want Financial Aid to return the funds to your lender. Then send an email and let us know that you’ve returned the funds to the Maroon Financial Credit Union and ask that we return the funds to your lender on your behalf. Processing time (and returning funds) ranges from four to six weeks.
You may appeal your financial assistance decision if you believe your original application does not accurately reflect your current financial situation, or if your financial situation has changed substantially since you completed your application. Learn More.
