Detailed Instructions

  5. If the balance circle amount has a minus (-) sign, that is a tentative estimate of what will be refunded to you by the end of the semester. Any changes to your enrollment status can change your financial aid, and many students receive refunds in multiple disbursements at different points in the semester.
