The first disbursement (* see note below) for Financial Aid is this Friday, August 28th. However, to receive your grant on this day, your entire Financial Aid file must be complete. This means that all of your required documents were received on time and processed by June 1st. In additional to submitting all required documents, you must have been enrolled in courses for the Fall 2015 semester by July 20th.
If you qualify for Financial Aid, please remember that your grant is to help you purchase textbooks and supplies so that you can succeed in your classes. You probably have homework to do this weekend and having your textbooks will definitely keep you on track!
So, before you withdraw funds with your OneCard, there are a few important things to remeber about financial aid. For example, financial aid is based on ACADEMIC SUCCESS! This means that you must complete each semester with a satisfactory GPA (2.00 GPA or higher) and with satisfactory progress (complete at least 75% of your courses).
* NOTE: Depending on the number of units enrolled, you may receive one disbursement for Financial Aid. Only full time and three-quarter time students will receive two disbursements this semester.
