Students with remaining aid balances after tuition and fees are paid in full as well as after bookstore purchases have been deducted will receive the remaining balance in the form of a check or direct deposit 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. Disbursements usually occur Early November for Fall, Early April for Spring, and Late July for Summer. For more specific disbursement dates, please refer to our website at: (until the website is updated, Fall 2020 disbursement dates can be found here). After the initial disbursement dates, we will process new disbursements approximately twice a month throughout the semester as awards are made. Students enrolled in later starting classes will have their disbursements held until after the add/drop period for those classes.

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.
