Financial Aid Disbursements & Billing

Financial Aid Disbursement
Disbursement of Financial Aid occurs by direct deposit or mail beginning by the third Friday of each term.  Subsequently, aid will be disbursed, once per week during the term to your ARCC student account on Wednesdays. If your financial aid exceeds your charges, it will be credited to your personal bank account or a check sent via USPS to your current mailing address on file. This balance will be disbursed to you the following Friday.  If your charges exceed your aid, it will be credited to your account and you must pay the balance. 
Make sure your permanent address is current at all times with the Records Office of Anoka-Ramsey.
Direct Deposit: 

To have any excess financial aid funds direct deposited to your checking or savings account, complete the Direct Deposit Authorization form through e-services.

With direct deposit all student payroll checks, refunds and financial aid overage amounts are automatically deposited to your specified bank account using electronic funds transfer. Students who have signed up for direct deposit will no longer be issued paper checks. Direct deposit funds are available before any checks are issued.

You will need your bank routing number and account number. You can find this information on the bottom of your check or your savings deposit slip.

1. Login by entering your Id and password.
2. Select either "Financial Aid" or "Student Payroll" from the left hand menu.
3. Select "Direct Deposit Setup".
4. Select "ADD Direct Deposit Account".
5. Enter your bank account type, routing number and account number.
6. Re-enter your password and select "Save".


Third-Party Payment of Tuition, Fees & Books

Third party authorization refers to an outside agency or organization that has authorized (committed) to pay your tuition, fee and/or books. The college Business Office will bill these outside sources directly. To ensure that you will not be dropped for non-payment, all authorizations for third-party billings must be received by the Business Office prior to the tuition deadline.

Your College Schedule Should be Firm by 5th Day

Make sure your schedule is finalized by the 5th day of the semester (we include actual dates). Courses added after the 5th day will not be considered for Federal Pell Grant funds. Courses dropped after the 5th day may require repayment of your aid.

Financial Aid Award Refund/Return

Adding/Dropping Courses and failure to attend courses regularly may affect your financial aid award and may result in a refund/return.
