Financial aid disbursements set for CU students

College students who will receive assistance from Cameron University for the spring 2009 semester may pick up loan and grant checks Jan. 6-9.

Checks will be disbursed on Tuesday, Jan. 6, for graduate students and undergraduates who have completed at least 90 hours (seniors), and on Wednesday, Jan. 7, for students who have completed between 30 and 89 hours (sophomores and juniors).

Students whose last names begin with the letters A-L may pick up checks from 7:30 a.m. until noon, while those whose last names begin with letters M-Z may pick up checks from 1-5 p.m.

Two disbursement days have been scheduled for students who have completed less than 30 hours (freshmen). Students whose last names begin with the letters A-L may pick up their checks from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 8, while students whose last names begin with letters M-Z can pick up checks from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, Jan. 9.

The university will strictly adhere to this schedule in order to efficiently process the large number of students receiving disbursements. Those unable to be on campus at their designated times must wait until Monday, Jan. 12, or later to pick up checks.

Checks will be disbursed at the cashier's desk on the first floor of the Administration Building on CU's main campus in Lawton.

Any Cameron student may apply for financial assistance. Eligibility is determined through a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which may be obtained online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Enrollment for the fall semester is currently underway and continues through Jan. 20. Classes begin Monday, Jan. 12.
