Disbursements

All scholarships and grants on your Financial Aid Award Notice will be accepted automatically and applied to your account unless you notify the One Stop in writing to the contrary (OneStop@MiamiOH.edu, 513-529-0001, or visit us in the Campus Avenue Building).

Upon your acceptance, Federal loans will disburse (pay to) to your account in accordance with federal regulations and Miami's disbursement schedule.

If your aid has disbursed prior to the beginning of school and you have received a refund via check or a direct deposit for the excess financial aid, you can use those funds to buy your books. Charge privileges are only available at an on-campus bookstore during the first week of school. Contact the One Stop to determine if you are eligible (OneStop@MiamiOH.edu, 513-529-0001, or visit us in the Campus Avenue Building).

Disbursement Schedule

Disbursement dates can be found on the One Stop dates and deadlines calendar.
