main components to the SAP policy: degree progression,
minimum GPA requirement, and class completion rate. A student must comply with all

Financial Aid Refunds:
What you need to do to get yours on time.
If you have direct deposit set up, you will receive any financial aid refund by direct deposit.
If you are not enrolled in direct deposit, your refund check will be mailed through the US Postal
Service. If you are taking community college (CC) classes, your refund will not be available until
the CC’s 100% refund date. Remember to submit an updated consortium form if you
make any changes to your CC schedule because these classes must be reviewed to verify that
they apply to the program in which you are enrolled. Refer to the financial aid section on the
Academics & Services tab in MyFSU for financial aid refund dates.
Refund dates can be found at:
