How and when will I receive my financial aid and scholarship?

Receiving Your Financial Aid

Offer Letters

The Office of Financial Aid will notify you of the financial aid you are being offered.

Awarding usually begins in the spring prior to the academic year for which aid is being requested. Instructions for accepting your awards will be sent to the student via email.

For more information about your award letter, please visit the Office of Financial Aid here: Financial Aid Award Process.


Funds are disbursed to student accounts the day after the last day of free drop/add. The policy of disbursing after the last day of free/drop add is a University Policy created by the senior administration.


Student Financial Services will issue refunds within 3 full days of a credit balance on the account (usually three weeks after the first day of classes). Students are expected to be prepared with sufficient funds for maintenance, books, and supplies for at least three to four weeks.

If tuition is to be paid with financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships, etc) and all financial aid eligibility requirements have been met, financial aid will be applied to the student’s account after the 100% drop/add period ends. Then, if a refund is due to the student, it will be paid to the student based on the current BankMobile refund preference setup by the student.
