Financial Aid Award Payment

Students who apply for financial aid and have yet to complete their financial aid file by August 1 for the fall term, or by December 1 for the spring term (or closest business day), should be prepared to make the required initial payment to register to secure any preregistered courses.

All types of financial aid – with the exception of federal work-study – will be automatically credited to a student’s account once his or her financial aid file has been completed and after the enrollment verification check has been performed at the end of the add/drop period each semester.

Any aid awarded in excess of institutional charges will be refunded to the student or parent depending on election. If a Federal PLUS loan is credited to a student’s account, any refund amount will be mailed to the parent, legal guardian, or student depending on the election during the loan process.

Refund checks are mailed automatically unless eRefund direct deposit is setup through Online Billing, so students are responsible for ensuring their billing address is correct and up to date on their Student Account.

eRefund Setup

If you will be receiving a refund, you may receive the refund via direct deposit if you have completed the eRefund setup. Login to Online Billing and click eRefund.
