Fall & Spring Aid Disbursement
Once the Student Financial Aid Office completes a final review of your eligibility, we will disburse all available financial aid funds to your account. Disbursed financial aid that exceeds your balance owed to the university is considered residual funds. (Note: Some financial aid awards are restricted to payment of specific charges only and are not refundable.) Some financial aid programs (such as KEES and CAP) have later disbursement dates. First-time Freshmen Direct Loan borrowers have a mandatory 30–day delay on the first disbursement of Direct Loans.
Financial Aid from most federal and state aid programs is based on a student’s enrollment as of census date each semester. Census date is the last day to drop at 100% tuition credit. After the published census date, aid adjustments are made for the term. Students can contact the Financial Aid Office for unusual circumstances that causes a late add, such as course administratively dropped for low enrollment, etc. To ensure proper posting of your financial aid award(s), please be sure you are registered for the correct number of hours as of the census date.
