When will I get my money?


Disbursement = Money is applied to your student account

Refund = Excess financial aid sent to you

If you are registered part-time, refunds will remain in your student account until after the semester add/drop deadline, or until you verify on My Financial Center (go to 'My Accounts' > 'Part-time Status') that your registration has been finalized. 

Disbursement timing once school has begun:

  • Loans
    • Please allow 1 week after accepting a loan and all necessary tasks are complete
  • Pell
    • Please allow 1-2 days after Pell is awarded and all necessary tasks are complete

How Federal Aid Applies to Charges

When Federal aid disburses to oyur my financial center, it is used to pay certain charges before you will recieve a refund. Tuition and fees take a piece of the pie, international study programs take a piece of the pie. Housing takes a piece of the pie. Dining takes a piece of the pie and i get whatever is left after all those other sections are taken.
