When You Can Expect To Receive Your Financial Aid

Pell Grants are disbursed on the 15th and 30th of the month. Students who are eligible for disbursements three working days prior to the 15th will receive their disbursement on the 15th. Students who are eligible three working days prior to the 30th will receive the disbursement on the 30th.

Disbursements will be paid based on the availability of funds from the U.S. Department of Education. Recipients will receive a memo from the Financial Aid Office when disbursement to the student’s account has occurred.

Funds in excess of tuition and/or books/supplies previously deferred are paid in the form of a check to the eligible recipient. If there are excess funds, the student will be notified that these funds are available. After receiving notification, a recipient should take photo identification with a signature to the Bursar’s window at Meridian to receive the refund check.
