Receiving Your Aid

Financial aid is first applied toward University of Idaho charges. If financial aid doesn't cover all university charges, contact Student Accounts to pay the remaining balance.

Note: Student Accounts is in charge of residual checks and direct deposit, not Student Financial Aid Services.

Financial Aid Availability Fall 2019

Students Enrolled for Direct Deposit

Residual financial aid funds remaining after your bill is paid will be direct deposited to your bank weekly beginning Aug. 22, 2019. Funds are typically available in your bank account within 1-5 days depending on bank processing time. Emails are sent when funds are released to your bank.

If financial aid covers all fees, tuition, room and board and there are remaining (residual) funds, these residual funds will be direct deposited to your specified savings or checking account. If you have not signed up for direct deposit, we encourage you to do so through VandalWeb. 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).

Students Not Enrolled for Direct Deposit

Residual financial aid funds may be picked up in the Vandal Ballroom located in the Bruce M. Pitman Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 26, 2019. Contact Student Accounts to have a check mailed to you. Emails are sent when checks are available.

You may also use residual funds to make deposits on your Vandal Card. Learn more at Student Accounts.
