Late Start Students

Financial Aid awards for late start students are based on the number of credits a student has on the initial day the student enrolled in classes.  For example, a late start student enrolls in two 3 credit classes today, then adds two 3 credit classes the next day.  Their financial aid award will only be based on the two 3 credit classes they enrolled in on their initial day of enrollment.

Financial aid funds are disbursed no later than 14 days after the first day of class that a student is scheduled to attend.  If a grade of NS, W, or F is posted for a student or if a student receives a 100% or 80% refund, a student's financial aid award may be reduced accordingly.
Please read the Financial Aid Guide for important information regarding your financial aid.

Important financial aid notices are sent primarily through email. Check your email regularly!
