*Refund Check Disbursement – This date designates the first possible date that refund checks will be available. The actual date a student’s refund check is available is determined by the date that funds are actually received from the student’s lender. A notification will be sent to students via AU student email notifying them of the receipt of EFT funds and the date that a refund check will be available, along with other pertinent instructions. Only accounts that have an actual credit balance from overpayment or excess financial aid will be considered for refunds. Any pending financial aid will not be taken into consideration. Account balances may be verified by accessing WebAdvisor and viewing the account summary. If the credit balance is related to a credit card payment, the credit card will be issued a credit up to the amount of the payment before any refund check is processed.

Students enrolled in 8-week module courses will receive their student loans in TWO disbursements. The second disbursement will not be received until the second half of the semester. For this reason, the first refund check may not be as large as expected. When the second disbursement of loan funds is received, another refund will be issued. All Summer Term loan funds are received in two disbursements from lenders.
