Any questions regarding the application and processing of your scholarships/grants/loans must be directed to the Financial Aid Office at (719) 255-3460. However, after your aid is applied to your account, our office manages the disbursement process for any overpayment and credits on your account. The Student Financial Services office also oversees Perkins Loans. If you have questions regarding disbursements or Perkins Loans, please contact us at (719) 255-3391. The tentative disbursement dates are listed below for the upcoming semester. Refunds from financial aid funds are issued within 3-5 business days from disbursement via direct deposit or check, depending on the refund method requested.
