Disbursement of Financial Aid
Student financial aid is credited to the students’ account records by the LSUHSC-NO Bursar’s Office (also known as the Business Office), which also delivers overpay (fund residual) checks covering aid that exceeds amounts owed for tuition and fees. Aid recipients must be registered for the enrollment period before funds are credited. Overpay checks are generally available within two weeks of the date funds are credited to the account record.
The Bursar’s Office sends email notifications when overpay checks are available. Students may pick up their overpay checks Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Bursar’s Office, or respond to the overpay notification with mailing instructions. The Bursar's Office is located in the Resource Center Building on the first floor. The phone number is 504-568-4694, and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Federal Stafford and PLUS loan funds are drawn down by LSUHSC-NO Accounting via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Shortly before funds are received, the Student Financial Aid Office sends out email EFT notifications to students. Overpay checks are generally available in the Bursar’s Office within two weeks of the EFT Notification.
