Disbursement of Funding Policy

• Students must be clear from the Financial Aid Office BEFORE any scholarship refund occurs.
• The Business Office will notify you via Haskell email to stop by to pick up your scholarship refund.
• Students will NOT receive scholarships before the end of the ADD/DROP period of the current semester.
• PELL is disbursed according to the Financial Aid schedule
• If a student is on a multi-listed check or owes for the current semester and a scholarship refund is expected, there is an additional 10 working days before a scholarship refund check is received. This is due to the scholarship refund process which is initiated at Haskell and sent to our offices in Reston, VA for processing through the Financial and Business Management System (FBMS).
