Student Financial Assistance

Paying University Costs

Disbursement of financial aid starts at the beginning of each semester for students who have all financial aid requirements satisfied.  Tuition, Housing charges, and Meal Plans that are included in student bills are paid from financial aid.  If you have questions concerning your bill/billing statement please contact the Billings Office. If you are a first time borrower of a Stafford Student Loan, you are required to complete a loan entrance interview and e-sign your master promissory note before your aid will be disbursed. You may do this at Have your FSA ID ready to be able to log into


Residual Funds

Monies remaining after all chargeable fees have been paid are disbursed according to the student's Higher One refund preference.
