Financial Aid Disbursement

Financial Aid will be disbursed to your student account 10 days before the first day of classes ONLY IF you have completed all your Financial Aid Requirements and have enrolled in the expected number of credits. If either requirement is unsatisfied, your financial aid disbursement will be delayed.

Once financial aid is disbursed to your student account, it will cover your bill in the amount awarded, starting with the oldest charge of the designated aid year. If there are charges remaining on your student account after your financial aid disbursement, you are responsible for paying the amount left over in accordance with the PSU Payment Plan due dates for the term. If you have remaining financial aid after your bill has been covered, that will be returned to you in the form of a Financial Aid Refund.

Please contact the Office of Financial Aid with questions or concerns.



Since the 2010-2011 academic year, Financial Aid Disbursement Notifications are sent to students' official PSU email address. When financial aid is disbursed and applied to your PSU student account, you will receive an email that explains how to view details of your financial aid disbursement and who to call if you have any questions regarding your account.
