Dates provided are estimates only and can vary, especially in the summer term, when some financial aid can be delayed until as late as August.

Refunds are calculated when the funds actually arrive. You can monitor the arrival of funds in your online student account statement on MyESC. When aid funds arrive, the credit will display on your account statement as paid, not pending. You will receive an automated email from student accounts when your funds have arrived. If you are due a refund, it will be processed within 10 business days and sent to you via your BankMobile Disbursements refund preference thereafter.
