Financial Aid funds are disbursed to students accounts during the first two weeks of the semester. Disbursement will only happen if the student has a complete file and has accepted awards.
All funds in excess of any university charges, such as registration fees or housing charges, are refunded to the student via Direct Deposit. All students are encouraged to sign-up for Direct Deposit through the university’s eRefund process. If not signed up for Direct Deposit, a refund check will be mailed after the second Friday of the start of the semester.Please read - Things to know before you cash your Paper Refund Check
