Pick Up of Checks on Campus
Students will only be able to pick up their checks on campus under extreme or unusual circumstances. Check pick up will be allowed for the current semester only and then students will need to secure a valid mailing address, P.O. Box or sign up for Direct Deposit.
All financial aid checks will be available for pick up from the Accounting Office windows in A-114. Checks must be picked up within two weeks or they will be canceled.
Direct Deposit Availability
Your Direct Deposit information must be entered or updated 10 or more days before our scheduled disbursement in order to receive your payment on time. If the pre-note of your Direct Deposit has been done less than 10 days before the scheduled disbursement, your disbursement will not be processed at that disbursement. Once the 10 day pre-note process has passed, your Direct Deposit payment will be processed on the next scheduled weekly disbursement.
Students Awarded After the Scheduled Payment Dates
Students awarded after the scheduled payment dates listed above will have their grant checks mailed, directly deposited or available for pick up approximately one week after receiving their award letter provided they are still enrolled and eligible for payment.
Direct Loan checks will be mailed, directly deposited or available for pick up for eligible students approximately 1-2 weeks after we receive acceptance of their signed eMPN provided they are still enrolled and eligible for payment.
Students enrolled only in Short-term (Late Start classes)
If you are only enrolled in all late start classes (classes not starting the first week of the regular semester), your grant and/or loan payments will be disbursed after your late start classes begin. Grant payments made for classes that you never attended may result in an overpayment and/or a reduced second disbursement.
Dropping or Withdrawing From Classes
Students who drop or withdraw from all classes or students who do not attend a late start class and have received payment for these classes will have their eligibility re-calculated to determine if funds must be repaid. If there is an overpayment, students will be notified separately.
Currently, students do not have to repay the institutional portion of the federal refund. However, in the future, students may be required to repay the institutional refund and if not paid, a hold will be placed on their records.
