Please note that one of the enhancements that comes with CUNYfirst is that the dates above represent the initial and first available disbursement date for the respective programs. Thereafter, each program will disburse aid for any remaining unpaid students every Monday. FWS funds are paid on a bi-weekly basis. 

Financial aid funds will not be disbursed until all "To-Do" list items are completed, under the "Self-Service" option, in the "Student Center" tab. We strongly recommend that you read the Guide to Enhanced Financial Aid Self-service Information in CUNYfirst (pdf).
