Financial Aid Overview
Congratulations to Brad Praytor for winning 3 credit hours at our Earth Day celebration!
Finishing your diploma or degree on time just became more important than ever. A new federal law shortens the length of time students will be eligible for Pell Grants from 18 semesters to 12, beginning with the 2012-13 school year. This is retroactive so they will count previous years you were awarded Pell Grant money. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office at 398-7595.
REFUNDS: The anticipated disbursement date for the Spring 2013 semester is February 22, 2013. Please remember to activate your Higher One account and set up your refund preference as soon as possible at http://abtechaccesscard.com
All students should know that they will be given four options to receive their disbursement when activating their Higher One account:
|1. *EasyRefund to OneAccount|
Same day via direct deposit
|2. Direct deposit to another financial institution|
2 to 3 business days via direct deposit
|3. Printed paper check|
7 to 10 business days (or more) via U.S. Postal Service
|4. **Not selecting option 1, 2, or 3|
Paper check will be mailed no earlier than 21 days after the refund is disbursed via U.S Postal Service.
*The "EasyRefund" option requires students to open an OneAccount at Higher One. As with opening any bank account, carefully read the agreement terms and fees.
**Students who do not select option 1, 2, or 3 to receive their disbursement will be mailed a paper check no earlier than 21 days after the refund is disbursed via U.S. Postal Service.
