Receiving Your Funds

Your financial aid award is automatically applied to your student account balance after your classes start (see Important Dates).  

Exclamation point Please Remember

All students are responsible for any tuition or fees not covered by financial aid. 

  • If you accepted a financial aid award that covers your account balance you will be held in your classes.

  • If your financial aid award is less-than your account balance, you are responsible to make payment arrangements for the remaining charges. Review your payment options at

Direct deposit to your bank account or a reloadable Debit Card is available through Student Choice Refunds (coming soon). Just sign up for the Maricopa Student Refund Program (MSRP). If you don’t sign up for direct deposit you’ll receive your financial aid refund as a paper check.  Paper checks can take 10-15 days to receive once the funds have been applied to your school account. 

Check the Important Dates to see when financial aid funds will disburse.
