Instructions for refunding KU Card balance upon leaving the University of Kansas
Students, Faculty, Staff, and other members of the KU community
There are no refunds issued for Beak 'Em Bucks deposits except in cases of withdrawal, transfer, or graduation from The University of Kansas. Money remaining in the account at the end of a semester will be available to you the following semester.
