√ After you've registered for classes Student Accounts will email you a notification that your invoice (bill) is available. Any aid you accepted will show as a deferral on your invoice.
√ If you need summer loans (6 credits or more) make sure to submit our summer aid application after you've registered.
√ If you will not be full-time then you must submit a part-time enrollment form to the Financial Aid Office. Part-time students’ aid will not show up as a deferral on the invoice unless you submit this form!
√ Loans begin disbursing during the 2nd week of classes. Any excess aid you have accepted that's above the cost of your invoice will be issued as a refund.
