Financial Aid: Disbursement Policy

Per Federal Regulations - the earliest that a school may disburse Federal Student Aid funds to the student's account is 10 days before the first day of classes for that payment period.  It is the policy of the KSU Financial Aid Office that no financial aid (Federal, State or Institution) be disbursed prior to 10 days before the first day of class.

For Example, if a student is attending a study abroad program and their first day of classes for the Fall semester begins on September 27, we will not be able to disburse any financial aid funds prior to September 17th.

The published dates for disbursements each semester are listed on the Dates and Deadlines page.
