Financial Aid Disbursement

Initial quarterly Financial Aid disbursements will occur approximately ten days before classes begin. Typically, outstanding amounts owed are deducted from the Financial Aid awards before issuing the difference to the student.  

Financial Aid refunds are issued in the form of a direct deposit to a student’s checking or savings account or a check is mailed to the student’s mailing address posted in MyCoyote.

During the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters, direct deposits and checks are processed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Checks are mailed within the next business day.

In the Summer quarter, direct deposits are processed Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Checks are processed on Monday and Wednesday.  Checks are mailed within the next business day.

If the check is not received within two business weeks, the student is required to complete the Affidavit to Replace a Lost Check form at Student Financial Services.  The student’s original signature is required.  It takes approximately 4-5 weeks to reissue the check.

The amount of Financial Aid disbursement cannot be discussed in detail over the phone due to student confidentiality.  The information can be viewed on your MyCoyote Student Center under Financial Activity Statement or in person with photo identification at Student Financial Services.

All financial aid recipients are encouraged to enroll in direct deposit to avoid waiting on the mail to receive a financial aid refund.

Any questions regarding the amount of Financial Aid awarded should be directed to the Financial Aid Office.  Please visit the Financial Aid Website for complete Financial Aid Information.
