Awarding timeline

Current students 

You will receive an email in late July with instructions on how to respond to your financial aid offer for the upcoming academic year. You will need to respond to your award offer before you receive any loans that are included with your financial aid offer. 

Your financial aid will be deposited in your student account by early September. If you have financial aid left over after your tuition and fees are paid, that money will be sent to your bank account (if you signed up for direct deposit) or sent to you via check a few days after your tuition and fees have been paid. If you have additional tuition and fees that are not covered by your financial aid, you will receive a bill for those charges.

Parent PLUS loans will be distributed approximately one week later than other types of aid in order to ensure that funds are properly routed. 

If you respond to your financial aid offer after early September, your financial aid will be deposited in your student account approximately one week after you respond.
