How long after I start school will I receive money from Financial Aid?
The answer to your question depends on many different things.
(1) Have you completed your FAFSA?
(2) Have you submitted all of your paperwork to the Financial Aid Office?
If you can answer "yes" to both of these questions, then your paperwork will typically be processed within 30-45 days from the date that you turned in your paperwork, and your Financial Aid Award Letter will be updated to show what you have received.
RECOMMENDATION: Continue logging on to WebAdvisor and checking your Financial Aid Award Letter to see if anything has been added, and you can also see that dates that checks are disbursed to students on the Financial Aid website at: http://www/offices/financial-aid/chdisbursement.shtml .
Helpful Hint: If your Financial Aid Award Letter shows that you have been awarded the Pell Grant, you can print out that letter and take it to the RAMS Bookstore on-campus to purchase your textbooks.
