Important Information about Disbursements and Refunds
The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships encourages students to submit requested documents to our office as soon as possible so that financial aid funds can be disbursed. To receive financial aid funding as quickly as possible, students should make sure all financial aid requirements are completed.
- To view your requirements, visit Financial Aid & Scholarship Self Service Portal
- Our office is working diligently to process all documentation received from students to ensure that aid is disbursed timely.
- Once financial aid pays on to student accounts, students who are eligible for refunds should receive them within 5 days if you are registered for Direct Deposit, and 14 days for receiving a paper check. For information on refunds, view the refund policy here
- Refunds can be used to purchase books and supplies at the UM-Dearborn Barnes and Noble College Bookstore
- Initial awards are based on the assumption of full-time enrollment.
- Undergraduate students enrolled less than full-time (12 or more credits) but at least half-time (minimum of 6 credits) will need their awards reviewed and revised before disbursement will occur.
- Graduate students enrolled at least half-time (4 or more credits), who have processed aid, will automatically have funds disburse without enrollment confirmation.
- Students enrolled less than half-time are not eligible for federal student loans or most other aid.
- Grant awards will automatically prorate to the actual enrollment level (e.g., reduce 25% for 3/4-time enrollment or reduce 50% for 1/2-time enrollment).
- Offered aid that has not been accepted will not disburse. Please review your financial aid award using the Financial Aid & Scholarship Self Service Portal.
- Students who add classes after their financial aid has disbursed may create a Student Accounts balance that is the financial responsibility of the student to pay.
- Students under Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) warning or on an academic plan will not have funds disburse until SAP status has been reviewed and the student has been determined to be eligible.

Satisfactory Academic Progress
The results of Winter and Summer SAP calculation and review should be available the week of September 12th, 2022. Please log into the Financial Aid & Scholarship Self Service Portal to view your updated standing.
- You may have previously received a financial aid award for the Winter 2021 and Summer 2021 Semesters. If your SAP status calculates as ineligible at the conclusion of the Summer 2021 Semester, the previously awarded funds will not disburse.
- Students under SAP warning or under an academic plan will not have funds disburse until SAP status has been reviewed and the student has been determined to be eligible.
- If it is necessary to appeal the suspension of your financial aid, the appeal process will be conducted through the new StudentForms system. The appeal must be submitted within 45 days of the start of the term.
- All changes to one's schedule must be officially recorded by the Office of the Registrar (Enrollment Services).
- Drops, withdrawals, or walking away from classes (unofficial withdrawals/drops) usually have a negative impact on SAP status (consequently, financial aid eligibility).
