When do you receive financial aid....

Postby Tainted_Praise » Thu Aug 11, 2011 11:08 pm

I want to move and get an apartment in the city of the school I plan on attending as soon as possible... How long does it take for financial aid to clear...

Should say on the award letter/online when fall aid disbursement happens; probably like four or five days before school starts. You may be able to talk to financial aid and tell them your predicament and get a professional judgement (where they adjust things in your file) to get the money to you, via direct deposit, a little bit earlier.

My government loans say that disbursement happens Aug. 12th but the school says Aug. 17th...so who knows.

You should get the money sometime during the first week of classes.
