Winter Quarter Financial Aid Disbursement Procedures

Direct Deposit. Life University requires direct deposit for all living expense disbursements. To have your monies deposited directly into your U.S. bank account, visit EagleNet to enroll.

Disbursement Policy. The quarter initial disbursements for Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, Direct Parent PLUS Loans, Private Loans, Pell Grant, GTEG, and SEOG will begin week 0.

Life University will release living expense refunds to students only after verifying student’s registration status and making sure no financial or academic holds are on their records. Students must be enrolled in courses counting towards their degree to be reviewed for aid eligibility. Federal aid cannot be awarded for courses that do not count toward the degree. 

All unpaid tuition/fees/housing/meal plans and other University debts (such as but not limited to lab fees or institutional charges) are deducted from students’ financial aid before disbursement. 

The disbursement for Graduate PLUS Loans, HOPE Scholarship and most tuition-based scholarships will occur during the 2nd week of the quarter, provided funds are available. Only students who have submitted all the necessary requirements will have their disbursement available during this time frame.

Please remember that to qualify for Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant GTEG you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more). In addition, to qualify for a full-time HOPE or Zell award you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more) or to receive part-time award you must be enrolled in UG 6-11 hours. Also note that not all courses count for HOPE/Zell eligibility, so if you are registered in learning support courses, you may not receive state aid.

Educational/Living Expense Refund. Direct Deposits will be made when all proceeds have been received and all eligibility requirements for Financial Aid programs have been met, and in accordance with Federal Regulations related to Title IV funds which are: 

  • No later than 14 days after the first day of class if Federal funds are credited on or before the first day of class. OR
  • No later than 14 days after the credit balance occurred if the funds were credited after classes began.

You may receive your living expense refund by first day of the quarter:

  • If you are making Satisfactory Academic Progress (as defined by the Financial Aid office), and
  • Your aid proceeds have been disbursed to Life University. 

However, if you receive an educational/living expense refundand drop hours week 0 or week 1, you may be over-awarded on your financial aid eligibility. Federal Regulations require that the Financial Aid Department notify the Office of Student Accounts to send back the amount of your aid, if any, you are not eligible to receive, due to the drop-in hours. (See Disbursement Policy above).

Your refund may be delayed if you submit your Financial Aid forms late or they are incomplete.

Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) Important Announcement

In the Fall quarter of 2023, CLIN-4801 the OSCE was moved to 11th quarter to allow students additional opportunities to be successful before serving in a PEAK office. OSCE testing consists of written computer-based Radiology and Critical Thought exams, and the on-ground practical portion of the examination which is modeled after the current NBCE Part IV examination. Testing has usually been held for the Radiology and Critical Thought sections in the Computer Based Testing center (CBT) Week 3 during class time, and the practical portion Week 4 Tuesday and Wednesday in the Assessment Center.

Effective Winter 2024, the Radiology section of testing will move to Week 2 during class time. Critical Thought testing will remain Week 3 and the on-ground testing will remain as scheduled during Week 4. This move will both allow students the ability to focus on one portion at a time, as well as help students prepare for NBCE’s Part III Radiology section.

Please contact me directly at Stephen.Paterno2@Life.edu should you have any additional questions. Course Schedules and the Syllabi will be posted in the CLIN-4801 Blackboard page as they become available.
