  • monitors and tracks your disbursements
  • reimburses overpayment, if applicable.

Receiving financial aid each year is not automatic. Students MUST renew their FAFSA application each year beginning on January 1st for the next aid year. Students who receive Federal Title IV aid must maintain satisfactory academic progress from semester to semester.
