Disbursement of Aid
Once your financial aid package is complete in the academic year and/or summer session, you can expect disbursements of your aid to begin 10 days before the start of classes. For the academic year, you will receive a refund, if eligible, in the fall and another in the spring. For the summer, you will receive a refund at the beginning of summer I for the entire summer if you are enrolled in both summer sessions, or you can expect a refund at the beginning of summer II if you are enrolled in summer II only. Your funds will disburse to the bursar to pay your tuition and fees based on your current enrollment. Please note any changes to your enrollment could adversely affect your bill and/or aid available to you!
The bursar will start releasing refunds soon after aid disburses, as long as your enrollment matches the criteria of the aid being processed. Your refund, if you have signed up for direct deposit, should be in your account before classes start to enable you to buy books.
