Excess aid refunds issued in the first two weeks of school will be limited to $600. Any balance over $600 will be refunded starting 14 days after the start of classes.
Financial aid may be disbursed to your account prior to classes starting, however, refunds of excess financial aid at the beginning of fall and spring semesters will be limited to $600. The first $600 of excess aid will be available by direct deposit Friday before classes start. Students not on direct deposit will have checks mailed to their on-campus or local mailing addresses on file. This will allow students to purchase books and supplies prior to classes beginning.
NOTE: All summer semester aid is not released until after classes start.
The remaining excess financial aid refunds will be issued starting 14 days after classes begin. This is to allow for all schedule adjustments during the drop/add period and to ensure that students are receiving the correct amount of refund.
Students who are using excess aid to pay for off campus housing may request a letter to present to their landlord showing the tentative excess aid to be refunded in order to prove funding for housing. Please make requests in person at the Business Office.
We highly recommend students sign up for direct deposit to ensure the fastest possible refund. Sign up for direct deposit through the Bill and Payment Suite in Anchor Access. For more information on using the Bill and Payment Suite, click here.
