1st Year Scholars

  • Requesting $0 for your disbursement: We do need a copy of your Class Schedule to confirm you are enrolled.
  • Requesting Other $$ amount for disbursement: No other academic information needed.

Future Years (2nd year and beyond)

In future years, all scholars will be asked to submit an unofficial transcript from your institution. This must include:

  • Your full name
  • Name of your school
  • Cumulative GPA
  • Cumulative credit hours earned
  • Summary of your entire academic history (including transfer hours or dual credit hours earned)

 Check-in with [email protected] if you have questions on these requirements.

Once a disbursement request has been submitted an updated status will be available on your HAA Scholar portal as your disbursement is moving along from RECEIVED to PAID.

In addition, a text notification is sent to scholars when their checks are sent to the universities, which usually states to allow several weeks for the check to process.

Once disbursements are approved, it usually takes 3-4 weeks for the checks to be cut and mailed to Scholars’ universities.

Usually, if you download the approval letter and send it to your Office of Financial Aid, they can waive any late fees, as they then have confirmation that the funds are on their way. Contact [email protected] if there are issues with this.

An approval letter is an auto-generated letter on our portal that is created when a disbursement request is approved. This letter states when the funding was approved and sent. This is important in case you need to download the letter from your portal and send it to your financial aid office to let them know funds are on the way.
