Our Best Answer: How and when will I receive my financial aid?

Receiving Your Financial Aid

Federal financial aid is disbursed to eligible students after enrollment verification and verifications of FAFSA data are completed. See the financial aid Disbursement Dates for this school year. Please note that your FAFSA can take at least one week to process if all signatures are submitted electronically by using your FSA ID. Processing a TAP award may take 3 to 8 weeks.

You can sign up for direct deposit or a debit card to receive your financial aid. Fill out a direct deposit form at the Bursar's Office in C110 or enroll online for the debit card option.

Reimbursement: If you have made payments through Nelnet, you will be reimbursed via check or through Direct Deposit or the CUNY Scholar Card option.

For more information, visit our Financial Aid website. If you have additional questions or concerns, you can ask them here or contact Student Financial Services for direct assistance.
