Beginning Fall 2014, all book loan funds will be sent to your HigherOne Card. You will no longer be able to pick up your book loan funds in person. Book loan funds will be processed overnight. The following day a list of students who have been approved will be sent to the Business Office for processing via HigherOne. The selection you have made with HigherOne determines how quickly you will receive the proceeds from your book loan. In most cases, the proceeds will be available on your HigherOne card or in your bank account within a few days. However, if you have not made your selection with HigherOne, it may delay your book loan proceeds.
Renewal Reminders will be sent starting January 2015 to students with current email addresses listed on the 2014-2015 FAFSA. Make sure your email address is updated on your current FAFSA so that you get a reminder to renew your FAFSA.
Beginning with the Spring 2015 semester, all first-time, first-year borrowers will have their Direct Loan fund disbursement date delayed 30 days after the first class day.
If you are a one-term only student, your Direct Loan funds will disburse in two separate disbursements.
