Confirmation of Academic Activity Frequently Asked Questions


When should this process be completed?

Completion of an academic activity should occur each semester during the first week of classes each semester.

Confirmation of an academic activity may occur later during the term but students are at risk of having a portion or all of their federal aid withheld from the disbursement process until this activity has been successfully completed.

When will financial aid disbursements begin?

Financial aid disbursements begin during the second week of the term for students who have met all financial aid eligibility requirements, including confirmation of academic activity.

Failure to complete an academic activity in any course does not affect the student’s financial obligation to pay charges for tuition and fees, Housing, short term advances, etc., by the university’s published deadlines.

How soon will my confirmation of an academic activity be submitted to the financial aid office?

Confirmation of an academic activity will be provided to the financial aid office weekly.

Students who have their academic activity confirmed by the drop/add deadline will have that information reflected with the financial aid office before financial aid disbursements begin.

Students who have their academic activity confirmed after the drop/add deadline will have that information reflected with the financial aid office after the tuition/fee and housing deadline. Any additional financial aid disbursements will occur on a weekly basis thereafter.
