Refunds for all types of financial aid (Pell, Direct Loans, etc.) will begin approximately two weeks after disbursement. You must be attending class and continue to meet all eligibility requirements to receive a refund. Any withdrawals or late-starting course(s) may delay refunds. Students enrolled in Term II course(s) will not receive a refund until after attendance verification is completed for Term II courses.
Loan funds for first-time loan borrowers cannot be refunded until 30 days after your course(s) have begun. This applies to loans only, not other types of aid such as Pell grant. Loan funds for one semester only (Fall only, Spring only, Summer only) will be refunded in two installments within the semester.
Because all financial aid funds will not be released until several weeks into the semester, you will need to plan ahead for non-institutional expenses such as rent, transportation, and childcare.
