Students who have completed the financial aid application process before the first payment deadline of the semester and have been notified that they are scheduled to receive aid will have the financial aid award deducted from the amount due for initial payment. This amount will be due the day after the drop/add deadline.

The financial aid award applied to the student’s account at the beginning of the term will only include those sources of aid which are distributed at the beginning of the term — for example, aid such as grants, loans and/or scholarships. Federal Work-Study or stipends paid to individuals over the course of the term will not be applied to student balances before the semester begins. It is the student’s responsibility to use Federal Work-Study, stipends, and other similar funds to cover school expenses as needed.

Students who have met the requirements for UAB Educational Assistance 10 days before the first payment deadline of the semester will have the amount of anticipated educational assistance deducted from the amount due for initial payment. Students receiving support from non-university sources (VA, GI Bill, PACT, etc.) should contact Student Accounting and complete the processes required by the Third-Party Vendor by the first payment deadline of the semester. Payments from these sources also will be deducted from the amount due for initial payment.

Student balances calculated after available aid is applied will be available in BlazerNET after completion of both registration and financial aid processing. Students who have applied for and/or are seeking any of the above types of aid but have not completed the process must pay the required balance by the appropriate due date.
