Our mission is to provide students and staff with quality financial services, in a friendly and timely manner. We look forward to helping you understand your University account and setting your mind at ease while you focus on your studies.


Early Financial Aid Disbursement

Florida State University is making changes to the financial aid disbursement schedule for students. The first disbursement for each term will now occur before the term begins. The change will give you access to federal, private and institutional funds more quickly, allowing you to be able to purchase books and supplies; give you more time to plan your finances for the term; and give you more time to make tuition payments if necessary.

State aid, such as Bright Futures, will disburse according to traditional schedules—typically during the second week of classes. Check out our FAQ’s page here for more information!
