Financial Aid

Financial aid disbursements begin on September 6. Once funds credit to your account, Delgado must request funds from the Department of Education to pay a Pell Grant, FSEOG, or Direct Loan. Once your account shows a credit balance, you can expect to receive your refund according to the refund schedule found on the Bursar's Office refund page.

Our goal is to provide the best possible service to students and families who are in need of financial assistance to meet the increasing cost of higher education.
