Both time I went to school before were at CC's and I always got my refund check before classes started giving me money to get my supplies and books. Now I am going to a regional campus of a University (Kent State) and it seems more likely that they seem to be saying that even though they get the money from the DOE on August 21st that I may not have the refund part before classes actually start. The reason I think this is that I got an email from the financial aid department that says that I can add some of the extra funds before it gets dispersed to my bank account to my school card (It works like a debit card on campus) this week, but it says something about doing this at the main campus (which is no where near me) so does that mean I can go to my regional campus and do the same thing or should I expect the money to be in my bank account before classes start? I checked my financial aid online and it says that my tuition has been paid already and has the net amount of the refund. I know they say that if you are a first time student that you may not get your refund till up to 2 or 3 weeks after the semester starts, which doesn't apply to me since I am a returning college student (Starting as a sophomore) so should it be like the last two times I went to college and I will get the refund before classes actually start?
When do you all actually get your refunds? (If you get one?) and are CC different then Universities/Regional campuses of universities?
I am going to go to my campus tomorrow and ask if I can get some of the funds on my card to use but was wondering if anyone could explain this.
