Spring 2015 Financial Aid Check Release

Friday, December 5

The Office of Cashiers and Student Accounts (OCSA) began assessing the tuition for the 2015 spring academic term for all students.

Monday, December 8

The Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) began authorizing financial aid to be applied to the students' bills for the 2015 spring academic term.

Details

The Financial Aid Disbursement Hold for the 2015 spring academic term may appear in the top, right corner of the Student Center within iSIS. This hold will appear if the student's actual enrollment is less than the anticipated enrollment for the 2015 spring academic term.

To update or correct the anticipated enrollment for the 2015 spring academic term, students should follow these instructions:

Sign into iSIS. Navigate to the Student Center. Under Finances, click on View Financial Aid. Click on Aid Year 2015. Select My Financial Aid Details. The Cost of Attendance information is displayed. Select the Anticipated Enrollment tab and provide anticipated credit hours for the 2015 spring academic term.

Financial aid for the 2015 spring academic term will be on the student's bill as anticipated financial aid if the student has met all of the eligibility criteria in order to receive the financial aid. In compliance with federal regulations, the OSFA verifies each student's eligibility for financial aid.

If the student meets the eligibility requirements to receive financial aid, the funds are authorized to be applied to the student's bill. Students must meet and maintain eligibility requirements for received financial aid.

  • Changes in enrollment after financial aid is applied to students' bills may affect financial aid.
  • Tuition and fees for wait-listed courses are not assessed until the student is officially enrolled in the courses. The student could possibly receive a refund before all charges are assessed on the K-State bill.
