Financial Aid Disbursement, Payment of Bills

Financial aid is credited to a student’s account in equal amounts for each semester. Under special circumstances, a student may request permission to use financial aid for summer school attendance. It is a student’s responsibility to see that bills are paid in full by the due date - August 10 for the fall semester and January 10 for the spring semester. Bills not paid in full by those dates will be assessed a $200 late fee each month that a balance remains outstanding. Students expecting to use a Direct Student Loan for payment of their bills must demonstrate loan approval to the Office of Student Financial Services before July 15 for fall semester payments and before November 15 for spring semester payments. Anticipated earnings from a student’s employment may not be used as payment on the student’s account. All federal (except federal work-study), state, and institutional aid (excluding employment programs) is credited to a student’s account after the add/drop period of the semester for which the funds are intended, providing the student meets all requirements.

Students applying for financial aid will not be discriminated against on the basis of age, disability, marital status, national origin, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or military status.
