Purdue Policy Regarding Overpayments

Purdue University is not a financial institution. Payments directed to Purdue should be rendered for the amount due based upon a University invoice or the expected amount of tuition and on-campus housing. Payments for off-campus housing or other personal living expenses should be directed to your personal bank account (not to the University). Please note: Payments received in excess of the amount billed will either be placed on deposit for an upcoming semester or returned to the sender. (In the case of wire transfers, the wire transfer will be reversed to return funds back to the originating account).
