Financial Aid Disbursements

Disbursement Methods

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

Option #1: Electronic Payment

CUNY offier two electronic payment methods:

Contact the Bursar's Office for more information on these payment options. 

Note: after you have set up direct deposit in CUNYfirst, remember to keep your account information updated. Changes, such as opening or closing bank accounts, or changing banks, do not get updated automatically in CUNYfirst. You are responsible for updating your personal bank account information in CUNYfirst. Failure to keep your account information up to date may cause refunds to be transferred to an inactive account and 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.
