Financial Aid

Looking for Spring 2015 Financial Aid?

When you have registered for spring semester classes Financial Services bills your account shortly afterwards. Click on "Spring" to see the amount due for your fees in BengalWeb Finance tab (right hand column). Once you are awarded financial aid and have accepted your award, this is where you can expect to see financial aid applied towards the university charges. If your accepted aid for Fall 2014 you usually have already "accepted" aid for Spring 2015. You can view accepted aid on the BengalWeb Finance tab (center column) under "Accept Financial Aid Award".

Monday, January 12, 2015 is the first day of 2015 spring classes. Disbursement eligible Financial Aid funds will be transmitted to Financial Services 10 days prior to your first day of class. Financial Services will apply the funds toward your University charges and disburse any remaining funds to the student in January 2015.

Two Loan Disbursements Are Required for All Federal Loans and a 30-Day Delay on First Disbursements for First-time, First-year Borrowers

Federal regulations require that all Direct Loans (subsidized, unsubsidized and PLUS) must be disbursed in two disbursements based on your enrollment period. The first disbursement for first-time, first-year borrowers will be 30 days after the beginning of the first semester enrolled at least half-time. For additional information see "Loan Disbursement Changes".

DELAYS - Satisfactory Academic Progress HOLDS

Students who are not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) or are on a SAP contract may experience delays in receiving financial aid the following term. SAP standards and contract terms, including credits completed and grades, must be reviewed before the further financial aid can be disbursed. Students who are not in compliance will be denied future financial aid and may appeal. For additional information see "Policy".

*Note: In all cases, the outcome of any appeal depends on the nature of the circumstances, the quality of documentation provided, how the circumstances are being resolved or managed, and how well the student has demonstrated whether good progress is being made toward earning a degree.
