Summer 2021 Updates

-Effective for students starting a new semester during the Summer I, 2021 term or later​, financial aid recipients enrolled in an Online program will now receive their full financial aid disbursement and full stipend (when applicable) at the beginning of each semester. 

Financial aid and stipends (when applicable) will be disbursed every-other term, so students no longer need to wait for two separate distributions.  Students with applicable credit balances will now receive a single stipend at the beginning of a semester that will cover two online terms.  Therefore, it will be critical for students to budget accordingly to ensure sufficient funds are available to cover both online terms in a semester.

-Book voucher forms for Online students are now updated to request the amounts of $350 and $650. Students starting a new semester this Summer 2, 2021 term can request only one voucher amount to purchase books and supplies to cover both online terms. The book voucher expiration dates are extended to expire approximately 2 weeks after the start of the 2nd term. Any unused portion of a book voucher amount will be credited back to a student’s account within 30 days after expiration.​
