Financial Aid Advance

  • Financial aid refunds are disbursed approximately 10 business days after the Add/Drop Date.  The Add/Drop Date for Fall 2020 is September 18, 2020.  The Add/Drop Date for Spring 2021 is February 12, 2021.
  • This means that aid refunds will be disbursed around October 2, 2020 for Fall 2020 and February 26, 2021 for Spring 2020. 
  • This also means that there is a gap between the start of the semester and aid refund disbursement.
  • To cover this gap, please apply for a $500 advance by contacting Juan Mendoza by September 2, 2020 for Fall 2020 and January 27, 2021 for Spring 2021.  
  • Advance applications will be processed the first week of the semester on a first come first serve basis if you are eligible to receive an aid refund.
  • Your advance will be electronically transmitted if you have enrolled in e-refund.  Otherwise, it will be sent as a check to the address listed in your MyCLU.  To ensure timely delivery, please check your address in MyCLU to make sure it is up-to-date.
