Disbursement of Awards

We follow specific guidelines regarding disbursement of scholarships and awards:

  • Scholarships, federal and state funds, and other outside scholarships or grants received on behalf of a student are credited directly to the student’s account. When a credit balance exists, the student will receive a disbursement via an excess funds check. Annual awards are divided in half; half is applied to the Fall semester and half to the Spring semester.
    Disbursements are available on the first Friday following the last day to drop classes without appearing on transcripts.
  • Work-study wages are paid directly to students on a biweekly basis through the Payroll office. Students are responsible for submitting their individual time sheets to their supervisors in a timely manner. Students who do not submit time sheets will not be paid.
