Disbursement of financial aid

Financial aid is disbursed starting the 14th day of each term and then regularly thereafter based on enrolled credits. Funds are credited to the account created for you by the university's Financial Management office. Students are required to attend all courses before financial aid is disbursed.

Financial aid that is over and above the student's tuition, fees and, if applicable, bookstore charge is refunded by BankMobile Disbursements according to the student's selected refund preference.

If you have questions about BankMobile Disbursements or disbursement of financial aid, contact Gateway Student Services.
