Financial Aid Refunds/Disbursements

Disbursements of Financial Aid refunds (Pell and scholarships) are done in the order that financial aid was approved. The first disbursement is approximately four to five weeks after the beginning of the semester and refunds continue throughout the semester based on class start dates. Private loan refunds are processed on the second refund date if funds have been received from the lender. Future disbursements of private loans will be based on the date the loan funds are received from the lender and after the next scheduled future disbursement date for Pell and scholarships. For complete reimbursement schedule, please login to your myBanWeb account and view My Overall Status of Financial Aid.
