The Financial Aid Office works in conjunction with Student Financial Services to pay accepted financial aid awards to students. These payments are called “disbursements” and begin the week before classes start each semester.
Financial Aid is disbursed to eligible students as early as the Friday before the first day of classes each semester, and weekly thereafter.
All financial aid will first be applied to institutional charges, which include tuition and mandatory state and campus fees. Any remaining financial aid after institutional charges are paid will then be refunded to the student.
