First Financial Aid Disbursement (08/28)

The first disbursement (* see note below) for Financial Aid was on Friday, August 25th.

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 26, 2017.  In additional to submitting all required documents, you must have been enrolled in courses for the Fall 2017 semester by July 24, 2017.  This information is posted under “Dates and Deadlines” on the Financial Aid website.

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, there are a few important things to remember 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).

If you are unsure of your Financial Aid status or need help with understanding the different forms, log onto your eServices account or visit the Financial Aid Lab in Business Building 153.
