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 covers all fees, tuition, room and board 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 have not signed up for direct deposit, we encourage you to do so. 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 available August 24 and is direct deposited weekly beginning Friday, August 28. Funds are typically available in bank accounts within 1-5 days depending on bank processing time. Direct Deposit Sign Up. Emails are sent when funds are released to your bank or when checks are available.
Residual fund checks may be picked up in the Vandal Ballroom located in the Bruce M. Pitman Center (formerly the SUB) on Monday, August 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting Tuesday August 25, residual checks are available at the Student Accounts office in the Bruce M. Pitman Center between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. 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.
