The date your funding is credited (disbursed) to your student account depends on your program's delivery model.

  • Fall 2021: September 16, 2021
  • Spring 2022: February 3, 2022
  • Summer 2022: June 16, 2022

Online Undergraduate Programs

Funds are disbursed once you've reached half-time status (taking 6 credits in one semester). For example, if you take 3 credits in Fall Term 1 and 3 credits in Fall Term 2, your funds will post after Fall Term 2.

The disbursement date is usually 10–16 days after the start date for the 8-week term.

Low-Residency Programs

Funds are disbursed after the low-residency portion of your program has started. July 1 is the earliest disbursement date.

When your loans are certified, the U.S. Department of Education mails you a disclosure form and your disbursement dates.
