FINANCIAL AID SUMMER DISBURSEMENTS BEGIN ON JUNE 24, 2013
Financial aid checks will be disbursed into student accounts during the week prior to the disbursement date above. As soon as they are ready, funds will be deposited directly into the student’s bank account, if they have chosen this option. Otherwise, checks will be mailed out so most students should receive their check in the mail by the posted disbursement date.
Disbursements for grants and scholarships will not be issued for late starting classes until approximately 14 DAYS after the first date of attendance. Loan disbursements for late starting classes will not be released until the drop period for the class has expired. Single semester loans will be issued in two disbursements, the second being after midterms.

Financial Aid Deadlines
Some grant and scholarship funds are limited, so we encourage students to file as soon as posssible to maximize their award. Students should fill out their FAFSA by May 1st each year for the upcoming Fall term. If you don't apply by May 1st, your application will still be processed and you will be considered for whatever funding we still have available.
