Frequently Asked Questions


When can I expect my Financial Aid check?

The Financial Aid checks are normally processed when students have satisfied enrollment and Financial Aid requirements. The financial aid disbursements for direct deposit participants will begin as early as four (4) business days prior to the 1st day of instruction. Paper checks will be issued and mailed to students as early as the 1st day of instruction. After classes have begun, the disbursement and mailing of checks will also be within ten (10) business days from the date on which all requirements (both registration and Financial Aid) have been satisfactorily completed.
