Financial Aid  
LOAN DISBURSEMENTS and REFUNDS OF EXCESS AID

Student Loans are available to assist in funding your costs. They are usually disbursed in two disbursements per loan period, i.e., August - May. APPROXIMATELY the fourth week of class each semester, if your account is paid in full at the Student Accounts Office, you will be refunded any excess personal, state, private or federal financial aid awarded to you. These charges include, but are not limited to: tuition, fees, room & board, and traffic fines. If your aid includes proceeds from Parent PLUS loans, any excess funds MUST be returned to the parent, unless otherwise indicated on the application. Only then can the refund go to you, the student. OCU processes refunds by direct deposit. To ensure your refund is processed by the date below be sure to submit your Direct Deposit Application.
