Grant Disbursement Process
Once a student accepts his/her financial aid awards, the awards will appear on the student's billing account in MyUHV as anticipated aid. Grants will be credited toward the students university account after all required documentation has been received and all offers of aid have been accepted in MyUHV.
Financial aid will not disburse to a student's account if Financial Aid forms or documentation are still appearing on the student's To-Do List; or a Hold is on the student's records; or the student's cost of attendance budget and awards have not yet been revised to meet his/her current enrollment status. If one semester remains in an academic year prior to the student's graduation, the loan may be prorated according to the student's enrollment status and can be disbursed in one disbursement.
UHV begins disbursing financial aid to the student accounts no earlier than 10 days prior to the first day of class. The financial aid will be applied to current year charges. Federal regulations allow UHV to use federal aid only for current year expenses and for the most recent PRIOR academic year balance up to $200. Any resulting credit balance will be issued to the student. Students will be notified via UHV email when their financial aid is applied to his/her student account.
Any resulting credit balance will be issued according to the mode of delivery the student chooses when activating his/her Jaguar Card. Modes of delivery include funds being applied to the Higher One Account (Jaguar Card), funds electronically sent to the student's bank account of choice, or a check be mailed to the address on file in the student's Higher One profile.
