Disbursement delay—possible causes
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
You must meet SAP in order for your aid
You are not eligible for financial aid if
you are suspended for academic reasons.
Prior financial debt may prevent
disbursement. Most aid is awarded and disbursed by semester and cannot
pay charges incurred in prior semesters.
Residency status change
Some types of funding are allocated to
students based on their residency status. A change in this requires
re-evaluation of eligibility for funds.
Scholarship and waivers not met
Most scholarships and waivers have very
specific criteria for eligibility and renewal. Scholarships usually
require full time attendance and a minimum GPA requirement. If you have a
waiver, any additional tuition or university class fees must be paid in full
either out of pocket or from cash scholarships or other financial aid before
your waiver can be applied to fees, to avoid any late fee charges.
Resources not yet available
Some awards may require extra processing
time before funds are available. Be sure to apply for aid early enough to
allow for processing time, or make other arrangement to pay your fees.
Not registered for enough hours
Students must be registered for all of
the hours for which they are funded. If you indicated on the FAFSA that
you will be a full time undergraduate student taking 12 credit hours, but only
register for 9, your aid will not disburse. You must either register for
the full amount of credit hours for which you have been funded or contact the
Office of Student Aid to have your financial aid hours reduced. This may
affect the amount of aid you receive.
