Financial Aid and Your Student Account

There is a common misconception that the financial aid office is responsible for processing all of your financial transactions with the university.  There are actually multiple offices that help process your financial aid, make payment on your account and process refunds.  The offices responsible for handling financial aid funds are heavily regulated and have numerous guidelines to follow as we process your financial aid.  We want to explain the processing cycle so you have a better understanding of how and when your money is received as well as how it is processed once it is received by the university.
