  • Completed FAFSA form must be on file with the Financial Aid Office (FAO) by the deadline.
  • Any additional required documents, including verification forms and IRS tax return transcripts/W2s, must be received in the FAO by the deadline.

Disbursement Information


  • Students cannot receive federal or state funding that exceeds their cost of attendance.
  • Remaining financial aid funds will be disbursed each semester after the Financial Aid Office verifies the student’s attendance through faculty rosters. A refund will not be processed until all instructors have confirmed student class participation.
  • Disbursement dates are based on the deadlines for attendance rosters, which occurs after the ten percent point of a course.
  • Funds are not disbursed for courses until they begin and attendance has been confirmed.
