SAS On-Campus Bank
The bank is located in the SAS office in the Lower Level of D'Amour Library. It is open any time that the SAS Office is open. However, cashing checks ends one half hour prior to the general office closing.
The on-campus bank cannot establish deposit/checking accounts for students. The SAS bank is the place for the following:
Payments for any charges to the student's account can be made at the bank. To mail payments, send to:Western New England University ATTN: Bursar's Office 1215 Wilbraham Road Springfield, MA 01119-2684
Students may cash personal checks, up to a maximum of $75 per day. The bank also hands out and cashes work-study payroll checks in any amount.
Students and parents may purchase and charge food points to the student's account. Resident students may enroll in a meal plan online through the HMA system. Commuter students may contact Residence Life Office for further information.
Financial Aid Refunds
Refunds of excess financial aid and/or private loans are disbursed via checks at the bank area. To request a refund, contact your Student Services Administrator (SSA) at (413)796-2080. Federal regulations require refunding excess financial aid within 14 days. This is any credit balance due from Federal (Title IV) disbursements greater than the mandatory charges on the student's account, unless the student or parent submits a request, in writing, to keep the credit on the account.
The closest bank owned ATM is a Bank of America machine located in the campus center.
