Financial Aid Disbursements & Refunds



Fall 2016

The Office of Financial Aid & Student Employment will begin disbursing funds for Fall 2016 on August 24, 2016. Please be sure that you have satisfied all of your disbursement requirements, including the completion of your Federal Direct Loan Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling, as applicable,. You are encouraged to check your status on your WestConnduit/Banner Self Service Account.  Once your funds are disbursed, you will receive email notification from the Office of Financial Aid & Student Employment.

If you are eligible for a refund/credit balance, you will receive email notification from the Cashiers Office when the refund has been processed.  A refund check will be issued to you if you have not signed up for direct deposit; refunds are expected to be issued on August 31, 2016.  Refund checks from Parent PLUS Loans may require additional processing time.  These are all anticipated dates and are subject to change.

*Please be advised that academic progress has been calculated and notification of your status has been emailed to you.  If you have not met the Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements to remain eligible for financial aid for Fall 2016, you may appeal within the required timeframe as indicated in your notification email.  Financial Aid awards have already been cancelled for those not meeting the academic progress requirements.

Your enrollment status will be captured on September 19, 2016, the university's census date.  Your enrollment status as of that date may result in changes to your financial aid eligibility and funds already disbursed.  As a financial aid recipient, you are required to initiate attendance and continue regular attendance in your courses.  Should you never initiate attendance and/or stop attending your courses at any point during the semester, it may affect your financial aid eligibility.  When withdrawing from any course or from the university, you are required to follow the official withdrawal procedures.
