Student Financial Services disburses financial aid to student accounts within applicable federal timeframes. For students who have received financial aid awards and who are registered for the same number of credits which the award is based on, the disbursement of funds to student accounts generally occurs 10 days before the beginning of the semester. Be advised that financial aid awards will not disburse if your enrollment does not match the enrollment upon which your award was calculated. Disbursements to student accounts routinely occur several times per week. If excess funds remain on the account after the awards have been applied to your enrollment charges, a refund will be generated. Students who have elected to sign up for direct deposit will have the refund direct deposited while those who have not will have a paper check mailed to them.
Student Financial Services will review your final enrollment status at the end of the add/drop period or the end of the second week of each semester. If your enrollment has changed from that upon which the financial aid award is based, the award will be adjusted to reflect actual enrollment. If financial aid is reduced at this time, a balance due may be created on your student account. You are responsible for any outstanding balances created as a result of enrollment changes after aid has been awarded.
