Paying Your Bill - SPS

Financial Aid on Billing Statements

If your financial aid is awarded but has not yet been disbursed, you may see your financial aid awards indicated as pending on your bill each semester. You are responsible for the balance that remains after all financial aid is applied.

Your financial aid will remain as pending on your bill until the scheduled disbursement date for each semester. Typically, the disbursements are scheduled for mid-semester.

Disbursement occurs when the actual funds from each financial aid award are credited to your student account. Disbursement cannot occur until your financial aid awards are finalized and all missing information has been received. Additionally, any financial aid that requires full time enrollment for the semester or payment period cannot be disbursed until attendance in at least twelve or more credits is confirmed.

State Grants and Outside Scholarships

Since some financial aid awards are determined by an office outside of Centenary, for example the Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) which is determined by HESAA, a financial aid award may be removed from your account after disbursement has occurred. This can occur if you fail to respond or submit to requests for additional information.

You will be notified by the source agency (for example: HESAA) when this occurs.

Please visit our Disbursement website for more information about this process.
