Receiving Your Financial Aid
Financial aid is disbursed to your student account on the first day of class each semester, provided your financial aid file is complete and you have begun attending at least half-time for loans, and full-time for most grants and scholarships. Refunds are mailed (or direct-deposited if you have set that up) through the Business Office within 14 calendar days, or immediately after the 100% drop date has passed, whichever is later.
