Upcoming Financial Aid Disbursement Dates

Any funds remaining on your account after tuition charges, fees, books, and supplies have been deducted, will be released to the student in the form of a check. All checks will be mailed to the address on file. See above for more information.

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.
