Spring 2013 Financial Aid Check Release
Saturday, December 1
The Office of Cashiers and Student Accounts (OCSA) began assessing the tuition for the spring 2013 term for all students.
Wednesday, December 12
The Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) began authorizing financial aid to be applied to the students' bills for the spring 2013 term.
The Financial Aid Disbursement hold for spring 2013 term will appear as a Hold, 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 spring 2013 term.
To update or correct the anticipated enrollment for the spring 2013 term, students should follow these instructions in the Student Center within iSIS:
Under Finances, click on View Financial Aid. Click on Aid Year 2013. Select My Financial Aid Details. The Cost of Attendance information is displayed. Scroll up to display the additional tabs for the Anticipated Enrollment and Award Adjustment Reasons. Provide anticipated credit hours for the spring 2013 term in the Anticipated Enrollment tab.
Financial aid for the spring 2013 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. Important: Tuition and fees for waitlisted courses are not assessed until the student is officially enrolled in the courses. If students move in before the residence halls open or if they choose to live in a suite, these supplemental charges are not assessed with the initial contracts. These supplemental charges are assessed and reflected in the next billing cycle following check-in and usually occur after financial aid is applied to the students' bills. Charges are prorated from the date of occupancy.
