(Step 6 - Apply for Financial Aid)
All student loan funds are disbursed 10 days prior to the start of each term for the law school, if a student has completed all requirements in advance.
If you accept your funds 5 days before, or any time after the scheduled disbursement date, your funds will not disburse to your student account until 5 days after your loan is originated by the Office of Financial Aid. Anytime you accept a loan on the myIIT portal, you will receive a Loan Disclosure Statement from the Department of Education's Direct Loans Program. This is in effort to ensure that students receive information regarding their loan disbursement before their funds are posted to their school student account. The Department of Education wants to make sure that students are aware of their loan obligations before they receive the funds.
The date of disbursement indicates the day that the Direct Loan Program will book your loan to be released electronically to your student account. Our office must verify your enrollment and eligibility before the funds can be credited to your tuition account. This process may take approximately 1-3 days beyond the scheduled disbursement date.
If you have a credit balance in your account after scholarships, loan funds, and any outside resources have been credited to your account, the Student Accounting Office will process a refund for you. Please contact the Student Accounting Office directly at (312) 567-3785 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions regarding the timing of your tuition refund.
