Get Ready For Fall!

Below are some key reminders as you prepare for your fall semester:

  • The U-Bill should show Tuition & Fees/Room & Board charges as of the evening of August 1st, 2019.

  • Financial Aid will disburse the afternoon of August 16, 2019.

  • Financial Aid refunds will be generated on the evening of August 16, 2019. Students signed up for direct deposit should have their refund by Wednesday, August 21st.

  • If you have not yet signed up for Direct Deposit to receive an anticipated refund from excess financial aid, you can still do so by going to your MyUNIverse portal, selecting the “My Page” tab, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the Direct Deposit Sign-Up link.

  • The U-Bill will be due on August 20, 2019. For months following August, the U-Bill will be due on the 20th.

  • The Office of Business Operations will be running refunds daily the week before classes start and the 1st and 2nd week of classes.

  • Due to federal regulation, federal financial aid is only allowed to disburse towards Room & Board, and Tuition & Fees. If you want your federal aid to pay towards any miscellaneous charges, you will need to “Grant Permission” for your aid to do so. You can do this by going to your Student Center on the MyUNIverse portal, and under the “Finances” tab you will see a drop down box with the option of “Grant Permissions”. You will need to complete the Federal/State portion and read the Terms & Conditions in order for this to be completed.
