Home Financial Aid Financial Aid Disbursements

Disbursements of excess aid are made periodically throughout the semesters. For the Fall and Spring semesters, the first disbursement of student loans and Pell funds is typically 1 month after the beginning of the term. Refunds of state scholarships and other miscellaneous scholarships typically occur about one week after that, provided that funds have been received from the funding source.

After the first disbursements are made, disbursements are scheduled generally once per month.

Disbursements for intersession courses are typically made on the final day of the 2 week course.

Summer 1 and Summer 2 disbursements are generally around the 3rd week of classes.

Students are not refunded Pell for off schedule classes until after the course has begun and in conjunction with the disbursement schedule.

The disbursement schedule is structured around the beginning of courses and after verification of enrollment is certified.
