Most aid is disbursed to students in the terms where they are enrolled in classes and have been charged tuition. Federal Pell Grants and State Grants are typically awarded over Fall and Spring terms only. Federal Direct Loans are disbursed equally over all terms of enrollment. Most additional loans that are borrowed by either parents or students are also disbursed equally over a student's enrollment pattern.
All Financial Aid funds, including alternative loan funds, are disbursed directly to the student account.
