Financial Aid: Important Deadlines

Meeting Financial Aid deadlines is vital to ensure that you receive your award in a timely manner and to secure your preferred class schedule. Please make note of the Financial Aid deadlines provided below for each academic year. Students who miss these deadlines must be prepared to pay their own balances.

Payment Deadlines

You are a priority to Armstrong and the fee payment deadlines are quickly approaching.  If your balance is not resolved by the posted deadlines, your classes may be dropped for non-payment and you may be assessed a late payment fee.  For questions about your financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. If you anticipate a third party will cover you balance, please contact the Bursar to ensure they have confirmed your third party billing information.  Otherwise, please make a payment via Touch Net to protect your classes from being dropped.  Thank you for resolving your balance as quickly as possible. 

If payment is not made by the fee payment deadline, the student’s courses may be dropped for non-payment and a late payment fee will be charged if courses are reinstated. All payments must be made to the Bursar Office.

Mid-Year Transfers

If you have attended another institution during the academic year, you must provide this information to the Office of Financial Aid in writing. Failure to do so could cause you to be over-awarded financial aid, which could keep you from receiving aid in the future.

Summer Semester

If you are requesting Federal Direct loans, Pell Grant, and/or HOPE/Zell Miller Scholarship for summer, you must complete a Summer Application.

Disbursement Schedules

Disbursements occur if your Financial Aid is complete and once your attendance has been verified. After the first disbursement date, disbursements occur every Wednesday, unless it is a Federal holiday. You should be aware that your registration for classes that begin in the later part of the term also may result in a delay of your financial aid disbursement as attendance cannot be verified until the classes begin. For more information check out the Verification of Attendance page.

Note that you must be half-time in order to receive loan disbursements. For all undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, limited graduate, and provisionally-admitted students, half-time is at least six credit hours. For all regularly-admitted graduate students, half-time is at least three credit hours.
