Financial Aid Disbursements Overview
How are disbursements processed?
The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships (Financial Aid Office) disburses financial aid (including Bright Futures and private scholarships) after their office has verified that the student has completed all of the required documentation required for the delivery of the aid and after the funds become available.
These funds are first applied to applicable charges due on the student’s account (tuition and fees, housing, meal plans, book deferments, parking decals, etc.) before any refunds are issued. Students are notified via their GatorLink email when financial aid has been credited to their UF student accounts.
The Bursar refunds financial aid and student overpayment credit balances on the student’s account.
