Scholarships & Financial Aid

Disbursement

​If the student has completed all requirements for awarding, accepted awards, and registered for classes, financial aid will disburse to help pay for tuition and fees expenses. There may be different disbursement dates depending on the type of student and type of financial aid award that is accepted. Disbursement dates for all awards are listed on the student’s MyUHD account in the section titled Award Payment Schedule. For information on how to log in to MyUHD, see My Financial Aid Status.

Disbursement of Grants and Scholarships

At UHD, grants and scholarships will typically disburse prior to the first class day.  It is important to monitor the student Gatormail account and MyUHD Financial Aid and Scholarships Info for the student’s disbursement requirements, holds that may prevent disbursement, and scheduled disbursement dates.

Disbursement of Loans

Federal regulations dictate that Stafford loans for certain groups of students must be disbursed on a specific schedule.  First time freshmen loan borrowers must have a delayed first disbursement and will not receive the first disbursement until approximately 30 days after the start of the semester.

It is important for students to monitor their student Gatormail account and MyUHD Financial Aid and Scholarships Info for the most up to date disbursement requirements, holds that may prevent disbursement, and scheduled disbursements dates.
