Disbursement procedures

Aid cannot be applied to your tuition until you are enrolled at least half-time (6 credits undergraduate/3 credits graduate) and all requested documentation has been completed.

Your aid will be credited directly to your account at the Office of Business and Finance.   If your financial aid does not cover your charges, you are expected to pay the difference or select a payment plan. If your financial aid including loans exceeds your charges you may be eligible for a refund check. Refund checks will be issued by the Office of Business and Finance.  Academic year loans are disbursed in two equal payments.  A disbursement is released in the fall and another in the spring.  If you are enrolled for only one semester, your loan will be disbursed in one payment.

If a student or parent wishes to modify a loan, the Office of Financial Aid requires a dated and signed note (not electronic) indicating the academic year the loan if for (i.e. 2015-16), the revised loan amount and the student name that this change is applicable for.  This must be submitted prior to any change being made to the loan.
