  • Financial Aid disbursements begin September 7th. Refunds will begin to be processed 14 days from the student's disbursement date.
  • If you are enrolled in a class which has not yet begun, a portion of your aid may remain memoed until attendance is verified for those classes. This portion of your aid cannot be disbursed and/or refunded until after this verification is completed.

Refund Process

  • When?
    1. Refunds are processed after all charges, including bookstore purchases have been added to the account.
    2. Title IV funds are refunded within 14 business days after they have been disbursed to your account.
    3. Third Party Payment refunds do not follow the 14-business day policy due to additional verifications that are required.
