Payment of Financial Aid

Disbursement of financial aid begins on the first day of classes. Once all financial aid eligibility and documentation requirements for the semester are met, your financial aid award is disbursed to your student account based on your student type, enrollment, and course format. Some grants and loans may be disbursed in two payments or later in the semester due to Federal Student Aid regulations.

After disbursement to your student account, any remaining funds are refunded to you through Higher One. After admission and course registration, students are mailed a Higher One MasterCard debit card to activate a Higher One account for refunds and work study payroll.
