Financial Aid Disbursement

Financial aid funds are typically disbursed approximately five days before the official start date of each semester (summer, fall, and spring) if all application and paperwork deadlines have been met.  Students who submit application materials past the deadline may experience a delay on the disbursement of financial aid funds. 

After all tuition, fees, and other charges are paid, students with excess funds in their student accounts are issued a refund.  The university credits refunds to the bank account indicated by the student.  Students must log in to the “Billing Center” on the Billing and Financial Aid tab in their myHilltop account to provide the routing and account numbers for their bank account in the "e-refund" section.
