Financial Aid Overage Checks
Here’s what you can expect.
If your financial aid is greater than your total expenses at Herkimer College and you meet the necessary attendance requirements, you will receive a check for the overage.
IMPORTANT! - Student refund checks are valid for 180 days. Your check must be cashed in that time or else the portion of federal aid in the refund check will be returned to the federal government.
PLEASE CASH YOUR CHECK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE UPON ITS RECEIPT.
For the Spring 2022 term, these overage checks will be mailed on or about March 4, 2022 and April 1, 2022.
It is important to remember that your financial aid eligibility is dependent upon you regularly attending classes and making sure all financial aid requirements are completed. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize Student Online Services to track their student accounts, financial aid, and holds.
