Enrollment: Are you registered for classes? The Federal Pell Grant and Federal TEACH Grant are adjusted based on your enrollment. However, you must be enrolled at least half-time to receive your other aid.
Loans: If you are borrowing a Direct Subsidized, Unsubsidized, or PLUS loan for the first time at CU Denver, you must complete the Loan Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) at StudentLoans.gov to receive your loan funds. If you are borrowing a Federal Perkins loan, you must complete the loan requirements to receive this loan. The instructions are listed on your To Do List in Student Center of the UCDAccess.
Scholarships: If your scholarship has not disbursed, you may not be registered for enough hours. Many scholarships require their recipients to be enrolled full-time.
Another reason that your scholarship hasn’t disbursed yet is the scholarship funds have not been received yet from the donor. If the donor is an organization outside CU Denver, you may want to contact them to see when and where the money was sent or will be sent. Ask them if they are mailing a paper check or sending electronic funds to the University and notify our office. If the donor sent the money, contact us to see whether the scholarship money has been received.
