Summer Aid Disbursement

Summer award and activated summer loan: You must have a summer award and have activated your summer loan before aid can be disbursed to help pay for your summer classes.

  • Caution:  Completing summer counseling only postpones your payment; it does not mean that you will be eligible to receive summer aid.

Disbursement to help pay postponed tuition and fees begins mid-July

Financial aid, including scholarships and student loans, is disbursed by Student Account Services beginning mid-July.

  • It is your responsibility to clear holds, request an advance of your upcoming academic year loan or Pell Grant, or activate your summer loan by the deadlines.
  • You must activate your summer loans through AidLink (July 3 through August 8), even if you already activated your loans for the fall/spring terms.

All summer financial aid must be disbursed by the last day of summer classes, August 16, 2017.
