The earliest the Office of Student Financial Aid may disburse financial aid is 10 days prior to the first day of class for the term or part of term in which the student is enrolled. Student financial aid is first applied to the student account balance in ATHENA.  Any portion not applied to the student account is refunded in a check made payable to the student or directly deposited into the student’s bank account, if the student has set up direct deposit. The checks are mailed to the address specified by the student in ATHENA.
