Financial Aid Disbursements

Disbursement Information

Disbursement Methods

CUNY offers two different ways you may receive your financial aid payments. Choose the payment method most convenient to you.

Option #1: Direct Deposit

Your refunds are electronically deposited into your own personal checking or savings account. Enroll in direct deposit by following the instructions in the CUNYfirst Student Financial Aid Guide. Contact the Bursar's Office for more information on this option. 

Note: dealings with your bank that result in changes to your personal account information, including opening or closing accounts, or changing banks, are not automatically reported to your CUNYfirst account by the bank.  You are responsble for updating your account information in CUNYfirst.  Failure on your part to do so can cause your refunds to be transferred to an inactive account and will delay your receipt of the funds.

Option #2: Check

If you do not choose option #1, your refunds will be made in the form of a check mailed to your home address. If at all possible, we recommend direct deposit over checks for receiving your financial aid payments for both greater convenience and security.
