New to billing and payments? Start with the basics.
To receive a stipend award payment via direct deposit or check, students must be registered for classes in the term for which the aid has been awarded.
|During Fall and Spring Terms||During Summer Term|
|Students must submit all required documentation to their school's Financial Aid Office for the payment to be processed.||Registration may not be required for the summer term if the student is enrolled in a school that does not have a summer term enrollment requirement.|
Stipend payments are awarded directly to you--not applied to your Student Account. There are two ways to receive a stipend payment:
- by the University’s preferred method, direct deposit, and
- by picking up a paper check at the Cashiers Office.
If you are expecting a stipend, you will receive an email notification from Student Financial Services when your stipend is either directly deposited into your bank account or there is a check ready for you to pick up.
Direct deposit to a U.S. checking or savings account is the University's preferred method for issuing stipends to domestic students. This saves the time of picking up and processing a paper check, and makes the funds available much sooner. Learn how to enroll.
Alternatively, students can pick up stipend checks and ask questions related to the stipend payments at the Payments and Deposits Office of Student Financial Services. Stipend checks may be pick up during or after registration upon presentation of a valid University ID card.
Remember, stipend payments are paid via direct deposit or check. They are not processed as a refund of a credit on your Student Account.
