Autumn 2018 Disbursement Information

Financial aid generally begins disbursing one week prior to the first day of the quarter. To have your aid disbursed, you must have been awarded and have accepted your aid, not have any holds on your aid, if you are borrowing loans have completed required entrance counseling and signed promissory notes, and are registered for the minimum required credits.

If these conditions have been met, aid will disburse first to your University student account to pay your tuition, U-PASS, late change and other university fees. If the amount of your aid is greater than the charges on your student account, the difference will be sent to your bank account via direct deposit.

If you are not signed up for direct deposit, an aid check will be automatically mailed to your local address on file. Please check your address information on MyUW and update it if necessary. Aid checks may take up to 10 business days to reach you by mail; signing up for direct deposit will allow you to receive your funds quickly and safely.
