First Disbursements for Fall 2016 awarded financial aid is scheduled to commence the week of September, 19 2016 and continue into the week of September, 26 2016. Disbursement for entire student population is not a one-time event but a process in which the Office of Financial Aid must review enrollment status for the entire student population (enrollment verification process) before disbursing state, federal, and institution aid.
First Disbursement for Fall 2016 was scheduled to begin on September, 12 2016. Disbursement did not occur as originally scheduled, due to the institutional decision to extend the add/drop date, which officially concludes on Friday September, 16, 2016.
The Financial Aid Office can only disburse awarded Financial Aid after enrollment verification has been completed and the process to begin enrollment verification is predicated upon confirmation that student have completed registering for classes.
Office of Financial Aid awards all aid initially on full-time status. Bowie State University students also initially enroll as full-time students. During add/drop period, students change enrollment status from full-time to part-time or part-time to full-time. It is therefore important to review enrollment status of students so that if any adjustment has to be made on awarded financial aid, this is completed before the aid is disbursed and credit balance issued to student. Enrollment verification is federal regulation and requirement before disbursement.
