    Financial Aid Disbursement

    If you are registered in at least one class that began the first week of the term and you are eligible for financial aid, your aid will disburse on this date.

    • Financial aid refunds on Mountain Cards will be applied in the AFTERNOON.
    • Financial aid refunds by Direct Deposit will be accessible 2-3 days after disbursement.
    • Refunds issued by paper check may take up to 2-3 weeks by mail.

    If ALL of your classes begin in the second 5-week session of the term, financial aid disbursement will be after those classes have begun and instructors have verified attendance; disbursement dates may vary.

    If you have outstanding missing documents for financial aid, your disbursement of aid will be delayed.
