Aid Disbursement

Summer 2016:

Financial aid will be disbursed to Oregon Tech student accounts beginning on June 16, 2016 if all Requirements for Aid Year on Web for Student have been completed by the student and processed by the Financial Aid Office. Once funds have been posted to student accounts, refunds will be processed by the Business Office. Any refunded amount will be forwarded to Higher One for processing through your designated refund choice.

Award Letters for 2016-17

So you filed your 2016-17 FAFSA?

We are processing FAFSAs and are now sending out requests for additional information and award notifications. Awards are processed by FAFSA file date so the earlier you submitted your FAFSA the earlier you will receive notifications from the Financial Aid office.

Award notifications are sent to new students via mailed letters and to continuing students through their Oregon Tech email accounts. Students may also be notified about the Financial Aid office needing additional information and need to turn in all needed documents as soon as possible. An award letter cannot be processed until all documents are received and reviewed.

To check the status of your award log into Web for Student:
*If you are at less than full-time status in any term, let the Financial Aid Office know. If your enrollment status is different than what your aid is set for, the release of your aid might be held.
