Disbursement for Books and Supplies

Pell grant-eligible students who have Title IV funds awarded in excess of school charges are eligible for a refund. (All students awarded Title IV funds in excess of school charges are eligible for a refund.) The refund will be available by the 7th day of class in order for students to obtain books and supplies. Iowa State University meets this requirement by refunding the student their Title IV credit balance by the 7th day of class. If a student has yet to establish eligibility to receive Title IV funds at least 10 days before the beginning of a payment period due to outstanding verification requirements, unresolved or conflicting information, this requirement does not apply.
