Hello, greetings everyone. I'm a first semester freshman. A few days ago I received my financial aid refund (leftover money). Though the amount is a lot less than I expected. I remembered receiving a financial aid award list in the mail, which showed the amount of awards I get. I never withdrew any class, I never rejected any awards. So why is the difference so....unexpected.
Semester Tuition Bill: $1,750
My financial aid refund check: $375
The date I received my check seem so early since the semester haven't started yet. The date on the check is 9/9/2010 and my semester classes start at 9/11/2010 on esims, but 9/13/2010 officially.
