*Our default rate for student loans is over 15%, so your loan(s) will be disbursed in two installments with a 30 day delay for each disbursement.

Keep in Mind:

  • Students taking only late starting classes (second 8-week and/or second or third 5-week) will have a notice on their To Do List about a delayed refund.
  • During the Week Processing Begins, your award(s) may not be visible, which likely means the Business Office is processing them. Award(s) will again show on your account once the process is finished as well as the amount of the refund.
  • Any refund you are due will be processed based on your Refund Preference.
