Upcoming Financial Aid Disbursement Dates

Fall 2022 Spring 2023







For those students who have completed all of their paperwork and received an award letter prior to the beginning of the term, their checks will be released on the first disbursement date in the term, as noted in the schedule above. Financial aid will not be disbursed to students for late start courses until attendance is verified in the course(s). Once the course starts and attendance is verified, additional funds will be disbursed to the student on scheduled disbursement dates above. If the late start course does not increase the student's enrollment, no additional funds will be disbursed.

Payment Deadlines for courses:

  • Fall 2022 – August 18, 2022
  • Spring 2023 - January 5, 2023
  • Summer 2023 – May 16, 2023

In order for aid to be available for a particular semester, the student's financial aid file and admissions file must be complete by the specific dates outlined above. It is the student's responsibility to ensure their file is complete by following the steps outlined below to secure financial aid at the time of registration.

**Please note: Steps may take 2 - 4 weeks to complete. Please plan accordingly.**

  1. Apply for admission, residency, submit all high school transcripts or GED scores, and complete the placement test, if needed.
  2. Complete and submit the FAFSA at least two weeks prior to the payment dates. FAFSA applications are available online at
  3. Complete and return all forms requested from the Financial Aid Office by 4:00 pm by the payment date. To see if you are missing any requested documents, please log in to Patriot Port and under Financial Aid in the left side column, select "My Documents". If you need assistance accessing Patriot Port or Moodle, please contact the Help Desk.

Students who complete a financial aid file after the payment date may experience delays receiving aid and should be prepared to pay for tuition out-of-pocket. Qualifying students may receive reimbursement at a later date.
