Student Refunds

Student Refunds

Financial aid disbursements will occur on the 10th day of class in order to comply with federal regulations regarding certification of class attendance. Funds generally are not applied to students’ accounts until the financial enrollment process has been completed. Since this usually occurs after the start of classes, student should have resources to sustain themselves until funds are credited and refunds have been processed. Loan funds for first-time borrowers are not disbursed until the 30th day of class, per federal regulations.
