Financial Aid Posting & Disbursement

After a student's financial aid award has been accepted, the award package is posted as a credit in the student's billing account.  Usually the posting takes place in early June for Fall semester and November for Spring semester.  However, it is important to note that if all requested verification and other documents have not been submitted as requested by Financial Aid and Student Employment, the award package will not be credited.  Failure to satisfy the semester bill may result in late fees and possible cancellation of classes.


Consortium Agreement Information

A consortium agreement allows a matriculated student at WCSU (home) enrolled for a minimum of 3 credit hours to take additional classes during a semester at another eligible institution (host) and still be processed for financial aid at WCSU.  A consortium agreement form needs to be obtained from Financial Aid and Student Employment and completed by the host institution.  In addition a course approval form needs to be completed by the Chair of the department that the course falls under to verify that the intended course(s) are applicable to your degree.
