Financial Aid fee deferments expire on September 13. Your fees must be paid or you must be enrolled in the Installment Payment Plan by this date. Please note this deferment refers specifically to tuition fees. Clear any and all holds to prevent a delay in disbursement.
The Scheduled Disbursement date (on your award notification) is the earliest date the Financial Aid Office is allowed to begin the disbursement process and not the actual date you will receive your refund. Disbursement of aid occurs on a weekly basis starting no earlier than ten days prior to the start of each term, with the exception of holidays. All obligations owed to the University (tuition fees, housing, short-term loans, etc.) will be automatically deducted from your financial aid.
