Financial Aid Disbursement
How and when financial aid will be disbursed?
Financial aid awarded to a student cannot be released to the student’s Bursar account until 10 days before the semester begins (for Intersession, Summer I and Summer II terms: financial aid will not be released until 10 days before the Summer I session begins. Financial Aid for the Summer III session will not be released until 10 days before the Summer III session begins). Aid will not be released until all requirements are completed (promissory note signed; all paperwork submitted, reviewed, and determined to be complete; student is registered for required number of credit hours, etc.). If financial aid has been released to the student’s Bursar account and creates a credit balance, the student will be issued a refund. Students may check FlashLine (flashline.kent.edu) to see what their likely refund will be.
Higher One delivers student refunds once they are issued by Kent State University. Students have three refund delivery methods to choose from. To view more about about these methods, visit Student Refund Processing on the Bursar's Office website.
