Disbursement Information

  • 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.
