Financial Aid Fund Disbursement Policy

When will I receive my financial aid disbursement? Financial Aid will disburse at the beginning of each semester after the drop/add period on the financial aid freeze (census) date.

  • Summer 2018: June 13, 2018
  • Fall 2018: August 29, 2018
  • Spring 2019: January 23, 2019
  • Summer 2019: June 19, 2019

If you become eligible for a disbursement after the scheduled date, funds are disbursed daily.

What is a freeze date?  It is the date that registration is locked/frozen to determine the amount of aid to disburse.  If your registration is 3 credit hours on the freeze date, then aid will disburse for 3 credit hours.  If you are later able to increase your registration to 6 credit hours, financial aid will not be increased.

Does withdrawing effect my award?  Partial or a total withdrawal from the semester may impact your award and your Satisfactory Academic Progress standing. 

I never attended or was dropped from a course after the freeze date, will this impact my aid?  If you are withdrawn for lack of attendance during roll verification (-W) or drop a course after the freeze date, your financial aid may be reduced.
