Student aid is awarded and disbursed aid by academic term, i.e.,
semester (or summer term). Aid is disbursed within ten days of the
beginning of term, assuming all requirements are met.
Application review, verification (if selected), and awarding of
aid must be completed before aid can be disbursed. All financial
aid is disbursed directly to a student’s eLion account. The funds
are used to pay tuition and required fees, along with room and
board, if applicable. Any remaining credit balance is issued in one
of three ways as selected by the student.
Each student will receive a Higher One Debit Card in the mail
after registering for classes. The student will be given three
options to receive refunds:
Any of these options can be accepted as soon as the student
receives the Higher One Easy Refund Card.
The speed of these services is dependent on the information the
University has on file. If you are not sure that Saint Leo
University has your current mailing address, take a moment to visit
