Here are answers to the most common questions students are asking right now.

How do I change the amount of loan I accepted?

If you want to change your loan amount, you can do that, even after you have accepted. You can also return all or part of your loan if you realized you don’t need it all. Visit the Financial Aid Loan Adjustment form page to access forms and instructions or watch this step-by-step tutorial.

Why did my financial aid change?

There are a few reasons your award might change, but the most common one is that you have enrolled for more or fewer credit hours. If you drop or add a class, you may see your award change because your cost of attendance and your awards are based on the number of credit hours you are enrolled in for the term.

To learn more, visit the Cost of Attendance Award Adjustment page or watch this video.

Where is my refund?

Refunds for the fall semester are currently being processed. If you’re enrolled in direct deposit, they will be deposited electronically to your bank account. If you were not enrolled in direct deposit at least two weeks before disbursement, a refund check will be mailed to the address on file. Check the status of your award in the My ASU Financial Aid Tracker. If your status shows Disbursement, you do not need to take any action. Any refunds due to you are being processed. If your status does not show Disbursement, check your Priority Tasks box for items you need to complete before your aid can be disbursed and your refund processed.

When will my financial aid be disbursed?

The first refunds to students via mail or direct deposit will begin a few days before the beginning of the term (see our calendar for dates). Please check your Priority Tasks list in My ASU to be sure your file is complete so that your funds will be disbursed.

Please see our calendar for other important dates.

How do I complete the Dependent Household Size verification task?

We may need more information about the number of people in your household and the number of household members currently attending college. Watch this video to learn how to complete this form.

How do private loans work?

Private loans can be an option to help you pay for college. Before you consider private loans, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to see how much federal aid you're eligible for. If you decide to apply for private loans, the process will be a little different than submitting the FAFSA . Watch this video for an overview of how private loans work.

What is Loan Exit Counseling and how do I complete it?

If you have received a federal student loan, you are required to complete Loan Exit Counseling if you graduate, withdraw, or drop to less than full time status. Loan Exit COunseling usually takes about twenty minutes and helps you understand your options for successful loan repayment. Watch this video to learn more.
