2023-2024 Loan Disbursement Refund Schedule

Federal regulations require all student loans be disbursed in two equal disbursements. For most students, this means half of the loan will be disbursed in fall and the other half in spring. For single-semester loans, half of the loan is disbursed approximately two weeks after classes begin and the other half in the middle of the semester. Dates differ depending on whether or not a student has had a loan before.
