Disbursement of Aid

All financial aid awards, except Work Study, are applied to your university account. The earliest your aid can be credited toward your student fees is ten days prior to your first day of class (five days prior to summer classes). Delayed disbursement of loans can be reviewed at New Loan Disbursement Changes. Any residual funds will be disbursed either by direct deposit to a bank of your choice or by check mailed to your mailing address as reported on BengalWeb. These funds are disbursed by the Student Financial Services Office at 282-3000. For additional instructions see Fee Payment.
