FSA Disbursements

All Federal Student Aid (FSA)-eligible students are awarded by the academic year. University of Arkansas Grantham’s academic year is made up of two 16-week semesters for a total of 32 weeks; each semester contains two eight-week class sessions (or terms) for a total of four terms in each academic year.

FSA awards are scheduled and posted to your account evenly with two disbursements within each 16-week semester to be in line with each eight-week class session – four disbursements total for each academic year.

By allocating FSA loans to the appropriate term within each semester, Grantham is in line with FSA guidance. This process also gives you the peace of mind that your educational funding will be available when necessary.

For questions regarding the disbursement process or additional financial assistance opportunities that may be available to you, please contact University of Arkansas Grantham’s Office of Financial Aid at 866-850-2980 or email us at finaid@uagrantham.edu.
