Refunds are not made when the excess balance is created by tentative/pending awards. Students who are eligible for a refund should refer to the Office of Financial Aid website and the Office of Business Services for instructions. Financial aid disbursements begin each term after the drop/add period ends and conclude on the final week of the term. At a minimum, disbursements are made once a month; however, as a matter of practice, financial aid is generally disbursed weekly for each term. Students who receive a federal Pell grant and who will receive a refund should contact the Office of Business Services if they would like to request a voucher for books and supplies. Vouchers are only available to Pell Grant recipients who will receive a refund, and vouchers can only be used at the Flagler College Bookstore.
