Students with remaining aid balances after tuition and fees are paid in full and after bookstore purchases have been deducted will receive the remaining balance in the form of a check, direct deposit, or debit card disbursed each semester. This depends on the option you have chosen to receive refunds from the College. Prior to disbursing these remaining balances, the College must ensure that students have begun classes and have not been reported for non-attendance. We then adjust aid for students who are less than full-time, and disburse aid to pay charges (e.g., tuition, fees, books). Once all charges are paid, any remaining credit balance is then prepared for a refund issued to the student.

The last day to drop with a refund must pass prior to disbursement. Your aid is scheduled to begin disbursing at or around the 6th week of the semester. The disbursements are conditional on your continued eligibility for the awards based on your enrollment level and satisfactory academic progress.

If you are eligible for a refund of any excess funds, it will be processed no more than 14 days after the credit balance first appeared on your account. If your refund is being sent via paper check, please also allow for appropriate mailing time. 

For students who selected the paper check option for their refund, it will be mailed to the most current MAILING address posted in our Student Information System (SIS). Please ensure that your mailing address is current and valid in SIS. If the remaining balance check is returned to the College as undeliverable, you will receive a notification from the College informing you that you must update your mailing address in SIS in order for the remaining balance to be sent.
