Disbursement of Aid
All financial aid, except for student employment, is generally credited directly to the student’s bill in two equal installments, one at the beginning of each semester. Student employment funds are earned by and paid to the student every two weeks. Outside scholarships are credited to the account upon receipt, generally on a per-semester basis.
