Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds

Financial aid will be reflected on student accounts and will be applied towards the term balance when the aid disburses for all students who (1) are receiving bills through the Cashier’s Office (this is true for most programs, see payment policies), (2) are receiving financial aid, and (3) completed an Enrollment Agreement Form for the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

  • Financial aid funds will be disbursed approximately ten days prior to the start of each study abroad program or within ten days of the first day of classes at NC State, whichever is later. Disbursements are typically released on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
  • In some cases, financial aid may not be disbursed until after students have left the country.
    • Students should sign up for direct deposit through the Cashier’s Office
    • The Study Abroad Office recommends that all students identify someone as a Power of Attorney to sign documents or make bank transactions on their behalf. Assistance is available through Student Legal Services.
