Financial Aid Disbursements

Financial aid funds will be provided in the order that we received your financial aid application. See below for payment dates and ways to get your money.

Financial aid refunds are amounts due to the student after outstanding fees are deducted.

**Please note that you will receive your funds within 15 days after the disbursement date.**
