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.

To View the Account Summary

  1. Log into My FAU.
  2. Click on the “Self Service” tab.
  3. Click on the “Student Accounts” tab.
  4. Click on “Account Summary”.

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, Library and Parking Ticket 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 balance 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 year. All other disbursements are made on the second day of class, each half of the year. Students can find the disbursement schedule on the Important Dates website.

Disbursements are sent to students’ banks by the Controller’s Office, and are deposited into their accounts. In order to do this, students must complete the direct deposit form, available through their My FAU accounts.

Setting Up Direct Deposit

  1. Log into My FAU.
  2. Click on the Self Service Tab.
  3. Click on the “Student Accounts” link.
  4. Click on the “Direct Deposit” link to access the direct deposit form.
We recommend all students complete the direct deposit form to minimize the time it takes for them to receive their funds. If a student does not have a bank account or does not complete the direct deposit form, their funds will be mailed to the address on file.
Students need to budget wisely, as each disbursement has to last half of the students’ academic year.
