Financial Aid Office.

account. Most financial aid disbursements will
appear on the tuition bills mailed prior to the start of
Scholarships are also applied directly to the student account, and any
amount of overpayment of University charges is submitted for refund
Generally the University does not defer payment of bills on the basis
of pending financial aid applications. In addition, in the event
the financial aid application was received by
Financial Aid in
a timely manner and the delay in receipt of financial aid is solely the
fault of the University, the Accounts Receivable Supervisor will
consider making an exception. Otherwise, it is in the student's
best interest to insure the financial aid application has been received
and processed by the
Financial Aid Office
in time for aid to be available at the beginning of the semester when
the bills are due. Allow 2 months prior to the bill due date for
financial aid processing.
