Receiving your Financial Aid Award

 

Your financial aid will automatically apply toward your tuition and fees beginning the first day of classes as long as all outstanding requirements are resolved. Financial aid disburses on to student account balances every business day once the semester begins.

Once your student account is paid, any excess aid will be refunded to you by one of the following methods:

  • Direct Deposit (only if you have enrolled in eRefund within myUVU) 
  • A check through the mail (default method)

 

Student refunds are generally processed every business day once the semester begins.
