Disbursement is the process of financial aid paying electronically into your student account.  Financial aid pays charges in your student account.  If you have sufficient financial aid funds to pay off your account, you will receive a credit balance in the form of a direct deposit to your bank account or a check will be mailed to you.  If your financial aid doesn't cover your balance, you will receive a bill for the amount you owe.

Credit balances are paid within fourteen calendar days following the disbursement.

Disbursements will not be issued on pending financial aid (aid that has not been confirmed).  If you have questions regarding pending financial aid please contact the Financial Aid Office at 785-309-3100.

Under no circumstances will financial aid be released before the designated disbursement date.
