Financial Aid Disbursements/Refunds

Students whose financial aid award is large enough to cover tuition, books and supplies will be able to charge against their financial aid award at the CSI bookstore. The same is true for CSI housing, food service, and CSI Child Care Center. Students with large enough financial aid awards can start charging against their accounts the week before schools starts.

With the student’s permission, CSI can apply excess federal financial aid funds (amount left over after paying tuition/fees and room/board) toward other educationally related charges. These charges may include: traffic/parking fines, child care fees, library fines, late fees, and returned check charges, etc. Students can fill out an Authorization for the Deduction of Miscellaneous Charges form to have miscellaneous charges deducted from their federal financial aid.

Credit balances/refunds are disbursed to the student through BankMobile.  For more information about BankMobile, visit this link:
