How are fellowships paid?
Most graduate fellowships are disbursed through the Office of Student Financial Assistance, based on instructions provided by the UCF College of Graduate Studies. Student Financial Assistance begins disbursing fellowship funds and other aid after the registration and drop/add period has ended (usually the second week of the term). For the portion of tuition charges covered by the fellowship, the tuition payment deadline will be deferred until fellowship disbursement. If students are not enrolled in full-time hours by the end of the drop/add period, their fellowship will be canceled. Fellowship payment will first be applied to the student’s account balance. Remaining funds will be disbursed to the student either as a check mailed to the current mailing address of record or as a direct deposit into the student’s account if the student has provided the bank information in myUCF.
