Summer Quarter Financial Aid Disbursement Procedures

Direct Deposit. Life University is pleased to provide 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. 18/SU Qtr. initial disbursements for Direct Loans, Pell Grant, GTEG, and SEOG will begin in the first week of classes July 9, 2018.

Life University will release living expense refunds to students only after verifying student’s attendance 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 and other University debts (such as but not limited to lab fees, institutional charges, and “The Commons” housing) are deducted from students’ financial aid before disbursement. 

The disbursement for HOPE Scholarship and all other scholarships for Summer Quarter 2018 will occur during the 2nd week of the quarter, provided funds are available. Only students who have submitted all the necessary paperwork will have their disbursement available during this time frame.

Please remember that in order to qualify for Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant GTEG you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more) as of July 16, 2018 for Spring Summer. In addition, to qualify for a full-time HOPE award you must be enrolled UG full-time as of July 16, 2018, otherwise, you will receive a part-time (6-11 hours) HOPE award.

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 will receive your living expense refund on or after July 9, 2018:

  • 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 a living expense refund before July 9, 2018 and drop hours the week of July 9, 2018, you may be over-awarded on your financial aid eligibility. Federal Regulations require that the Office of Financial Aid 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 filed your Financial Aid forms late, or they are incomplete.
