Receiving Your Financial Aid
Financial aid is first applied toward University of Idaho charges (credit and lab fees, etc.) If financial aid has not paid all university charges, contact Student Accounts to pay the remaining balance.
Financial Aid Availability
If financial aid has paid all university charges and there are leftover (residual) funds, you can opt for a direct deposit of residual funds to your specified savings or checking account. If you did not sign up for direct deposit in the Fall, we encourage you to do so for the Spring. It is particularly important for students who are not on the Moscow campus (those at off-campus sites, on national student exchange or study abroad.). Residual financial aid is direct deposited weekly beginning Friday, January 4, 2013. Funds are typically available in bank accounts within 1-3 days depending on bank processing time. Direct Deposit Sign Up
Residual fund checks may be picked up in the Ballroom located in the SUB on Wednesday, January 9th from 9:00AM to 4:00PM. Starting Thursday January 10th, residual checks are available at the Student Accounts office in the SUB between 8:30AM and 4:30PM. Contact Student Accounts to have a check mailed to you.
You may also use residual financial aid and/or scholarships to make deposits on your Vandal Card with your billing statement. Learn more at Student Accounts.
