Financial Aid and Scholarships


This depends on a variety of factors, but you should review your My Sac State Student Center frequently:

  • Clear all Financial Aid holds listed in the "Holds" section
  • Submit all "initiated" To Do List Items promptly 
  • Disbursements begin one week before the start of the semester

All institutional charges owed to the University (tuition fees, housing, campus fees, etc.) will be automatically deducted from your financial aid disbursement before determining your refund.  If eligible, allow 2 - 3 business days after disbursement for your eRefund.  If you are expecting a paper check, allow 5 - 7 business days for mailing time.

Students who have not signed up for eRefund will receive a check mailed to the student's permanent address.  All Parent PLUS loan checks are mailed directly to the parent at the address provided on the parent Master Promissory Note.  In some instances you may be required to pick up your check at the Bursar's Office.
