Financial Aid

There is a time period between financial aid being dispersed to your student account and when it is refunded to you.  During this time frame we make these funds available to you on your P2 Card so that you can go to Barnes & Noble on-campus and buy books and supplies.  See the Financial Aid Office's calendar for the dates to use your financial aid in the bookstore.

Before you go over to Barnes & Noble to use your financial aid:

It is important that you know how much financial aid you have on your card. Barnes & Noble cannot view your balance.  You can visit an Account Management Center located in the Business Building or on the second floor between the University Center and Administration Building. You can check your Financial Aid account balance through this device. You can also log on to the P2 Portal and get Financial Aid account balance. You will swipe the black magstripe to access these funds.

If you have chosen for your refund to be put on to the P2 Card Money Network® account and you are receiving financial aid loan funds, these funds may have already been refunded to you!  Log into P2 Card Money Network account to check your account balance.  You will swipe the holographic magstripe (silver) to access these funds.
