Deadline to Apply for Federal PLUS and Alternative/Private Loans: The eBill due date for Fall 2015 is August 26, 2015. To ensure all financial aid funds are credited to your account before the due date, apply for Federal Direct PLUS and Alternative/Private loans before August 12, 2015. Loan requests received after August 12 will be processed, but may not be applied to your account before the eBill due date. Late fees may be incurred for balances not paid in full before the August 26, 2015 due date.
Summer Financial Aid Disbursements: Summer Federal Pell Grant awards will be disbursed (paid to your student account) after the summer census date of July 8, 2015. All other summer financial aid awards will begin disbursing on the first day of classes of the earliest summer session that you are registered in. Session 1 disbursements will begin on May 26, 2015; Session 2 disbursements will begin on June 22, 2015; Session 3 disbursements will begin on July 6, 2015.
- Summer Pell awards are currently based on an assumed full-time registration. Pell awards will be recalculated to reflect actual registration on the Financial Aid Summer Census date of July 8, 2015.
- Alternative loan funds are not immediately paid to your student account. The loan funds will be applied to your account once the lender has sent the funds to UB. Refer to the Alternative Loan Processing Timeline on our Alternative Loans webpage.
