Disbursements and Refunds
The easiest and fastest way to get your financial aid refunds is through Direct Deposit. You may opt to have your financial aid refunds direct deposited (PDF) into your personal bank account.
You may enroll to receive your funds on the CUNY Scholar Card, a fast, safe & easy way to receive your CUNY financial aid & work study payments.
Financial Aid disbursement dates may be viewed on your CUNYfirst account.
Once you have logged in
go to the Student Center page and click
'View Financial Aid" then select
'View Scheduled Disbursement Dates'. (The disbursement date represents the earliest possible date that aid can be disbursed, not necessarily your specific date.)
