Notes:

*Please note, financial aid is paid only for classes that you attend. If you are taking courses that begin after the first official day of the semester (a course that starts mid-term, for example), payment for that coursework will be reflected at a later date after that course actually begins and your attendance has been confirmed. For more details on payment dates, feel free to contact the Office of Student Financial Services.

**Financial aid is disbursed only for courses required for your current program of study. Additional coursework taken outside of your program of study does not figure into the number of credit hours calculated for financial aid disbursement purposes. A course outside of your program of study would be any course not specifically required for completion of the degree. Note: required remedial coursework can be included for a maximum of 30 credit hours.

***Federal student loans are disbursed in two equal installments per semester. The first disbursement will occur mid-way through the first half of the semester, and the second will occur mid-way through the second half of the semester. Federal student loan eligibility requirements must be met in order to receive the federal student loan disbursement. Students must have met the Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) requirements and be enrolled (and attending) a minimum of 6 credit hours.
