Definition of Glossary Terms
Disbursement: The process in which the school pays funds directly to the student's school account from either internal or external aid sources, which is different from a refund. Aid sources include scholarships, grants, loans and other aid.
Each aid disbursement is set up to disburse to a student’s account 21 days following his or her enrollment requirement for the type of aid being received. Checks and holds are in place in Banner to ensure this policy is correctly implemented.
Exemptions are not considered funds and therefore will show as a payment or discount toward an account prior to the 21 day disbursement timeframe.
