If I am receiving Financial Aid, will it pay my rent when I move in?
Maybe. It depends on when you move in, how much Financial Aid you get, and when Financial Aid will be disbursed. Financial Aid is paid to tuition and fees first, and then it will pay other charges such as housing. The soonest Financial Aid can pay your rent is the first day of the quarter. So, if you move in prior to the start of the quarter you will be responsible for all charges leading up to that quarter. It is your responsibility to check with the Financial Aid office regarding disbursement dates and amounts. The Housing Office will not hold payment due pending receipt of earnings, income or financial aid.
