Disbursement of Financial Aid

Vassar scholarship funds are credited to the student's account in mid June for the Fall term and in mid December for the spring term. Federal funds and the Vassar loan will be disbursed in two installments, fall and spring, when all necessary paperwork has been completed and not earlier than 10 days prior to the start of Vassar classes. First time Stafford loan borrowers will not receive funds until 30 days after the start of classes.

Please Note: The student account's office will deduct from your financial aid any outstanding balance on your student account. We urge you to discuss disbursement procedures with them after you receive your Exchange/JYA award letter.
