For timely receipt of funds, you will need to sign-up for Electronic Direct
Deposit (EDD). EDD permits delivery of your aid (after deduction of
University charges) directly to your checking account. For those who do
not participate in the EDD Program, your checks will be MAILED to your
permanent address on file. We will mail checks within fourteen
business days of the disbursement date.
