Federal Grants: Federal Grant Disbursement Process

Federal Grants are disbursed after enrollment is verified by the U.S. Department of Education (ED). If the disbursement results in a credit balance, the student will receive a refund either in the form of a check or a direct deposit from the State of Maryland Office of the Comptroller. Checks arrive within 14 days following the disbursement; direct deposit takes 3-5 days.

You can monitor the status of your refund online by logging in to MyUMUC and going to Financial Aid.
