Financial aid is disbursed to your student billing account (MyBill) no earlier* than 10 days prior to the first day of instruction. There are a number of tasks that you need to complete in order to make sure that your financial aid awards disburse in a timely manner. Some of the top things you need to remember are listed here, but to see all of this important information review your Award Terms & Conditions MyFinancialAid at My.UCMerced.edu. You can also find more information on our website: financialaid.ucmerced.edu/disbursement.
Student Refunds are usually issued within a few business days after financial aid awards are disbursed to student accounts and there is a negative balance. For information about Student Refunds, please visit the BFS website.
