Disbursement of Aid

Disbursement and Refund Checks

Disbursements of financial aid are made directly to the student account after the add/drop period of each semester once enrollment, residency, grade level, program status, and housing have been confirmed and all necessary requirements have been met (i.e. loan entrance counseling and/or promissory notes, etc.). 

Students whose financial aid awards exceed their charges will receive an email notification from the Bursar Office when the funds are available or a direct deposit has been made. Checks are distributed through the University’s Bursar Office.  No refund checks/direct deposits will be distributed prior to the end of the add/drop period. Book cards are now available as a result of anticipated excess funds.

If you have questions about your student account or the processing of a refund, you may contact the One Stop Student Administrative Service Center.
