Student Accounts and Disbursements

Student Accounts

Student Accounts are maintained by the FAU’s Controller's Office. Students are able to view all charges, payments and disbursements by logging into My FAU.

Once financial aid has been applied toward tuition, fees and/or other charges, students are responsible for payment of any remaining balance due. Fee payment due dates are typically the Monday following the start of the first and second halves of the academic year. Fee payment due dates for each class can be found at Important Dates.

Please be aware that Federal student aid may not pay charges that are not academically related, such as Student Health Services Fees. Students are expected to view their accounts on a regular basis to ensure these charges are paid. Questions about student accounts should be sent to


When financial aid exceeds charges, the balances will be disbursed to the students to purchase books and supplies, and to meet living costs.

First year medical students receive their first disbursement on the second day of orientation for the first half of the first year. All other students will receive their disbursements on the second day of class, each half of the year. Students can find the disbursement schedule on the Important Dates.

Disbursements are direct-deposited into students’ accounts by the Controller’s Office. Students must complete the direct deposit form, available through their My FAU accounts. If a student does not have a bank account the disbursement will be made by paper check and will have to be picked up from the Cashier’s Office, in the Student Services Building, on the other side of campus.

Students need to budget wisely, as each disbursement has to last half of the students’ academic year.
