Please be sure to view the status of your Financial Aid to:
Installment Plan: IF YOU DO NOT SIGN-UP FOR THE INSTALLMENT PLAN, ALL OF YOUR TUITION WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT.
Make sure you have signed up for the Installment Plan for your tuition and fees prior to your tuition/fee due date. If you sign up for the installment plan after your funds have been disbursed, your refund check will be delayed.
Tuition/Fees: Tuition/fees are due in full before the first class day of the semester or late fees and enrollment cancellation could apply. Check your account balance often!
If you ARE on Financial aid and would rather pay your tuition on your own, you may pay your tuition no later than 10 days prior to your first class day to ensure it will not be deducted from your Financial Aid disbursement.
If a Third-party is paying your tuition and your sponsorship has not been processed prior to aid being disbursed, your aid will be applied to tuition/fees. Once your sponsorship has been processed, if there is a credit on your account balance, you will receive a refund. Graduate students, please contact the Graduate school to check the status.
If you are receiving GI Benefits that pays your tuition, you should have received an email notification from James Bowen that your Benefits have been certified. If you have not received your notification, please email her directly.
Academic/Departmental Scholarships: You will not receive a paper check from the school or department; all funds will be disbursed to your MySTAR account and if all tuition/fees which are due have been paid, you will receive a refund check or direct deposit.
If you are receiving an academic/departmental scholarship, the funds will be disbursed to your account once Enrollment Services receives the request from the school/department. You will receive notification from the school/department regarding any required documents that you must submit prior to the disbursement being processed.
Direct Deposit: If this form has not been received by noon on 10 days prior to your disbursement date we cannot guarantee your funds will be sent via ACH. Your request will be processed and your next financial aid disbursement should be processed via ACH.
If you have not signed up for direct deposit and you want your funds electronically sent to your bank account, please login to mySTAR to enroll in direct deposit. If you are unsure if you have direct deposit, please email Student Financial Services; otherwise, your disbursements will be mailed to you.
