Financial Aid Offer Letter

When your financial aid offer has been prepared, you will receive a notification that your Financial Aid Offer Letter is available in your Message Center on home.apu.edu. Please review your offer carefully, and notify your Student Account Specialist if any of the items on the offer letter appear to be incorrect. The information will be reviewed and updated, if needed. If revisions are made, a revised offer letter will be issued to you.

Summer Aid

The aid represented in your Financial Aid Offer Letter is based on the enrollment terms that are designated as required by your academic program. If your offer does not include aid for the summer term but you plan to attend during the summer, contact your Student Account Specialist to update your anticipated enrollment and receive a revised offer.

Credit Balance Information

If you have completed all of your “To Do List” items and are enrolled at least half-time, loan funds will be disbursed to your student account no sooner than one week prior to the start of your classes. Your loan funds will be disbursed in equal installments (see sample refund calculation below). If you have borrowed above your term charges leaving an excess in credit, we will automatically send you a refund.
