    Students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive financial aid funding.  Student Financial Assistance (financial aid office) has outlined the enrollment requirements below.  Enrollment requirements are based on the program to which you have been accepted.

    1. Traditional Undergraduate programs—6 units per term
    2. Adult Undergraduate programs—6 units per term
    3. LVN to BSN program—6 units per term
    4. RN to BSN program—6 units per term

    6. Teacher credential program—6 units per term

     It is the responsibility of the student to notify Student Financial Assistance (financial aid office) of any changes in enrollment status during any given term.  If it is determined that you received full-time aid and you were enrolled less than full-time, your aid will be reduced to the appropriate level and you will be responsible for re-paying HNU for all or part of your refund disbursement.


    Fall 2014 disbursements begin September 24, 2014 (Wed)

    Spring 2015 disbursments begin February 9, 2015 (Mon)

    **These are the earliest dates that refunds will be available for eligible students.  If you meet the minimum enrollment requirements and your funds have been received, your account will be audited and a refund will be issued to you on the above date.

    If your funds are not received, we cannot issue your refund.  We receive funds nearly every week and issue refunds until all eligible students have received their refunds.

    If the credit balance on your account is $300 or less, you must request that a refund be issued. If you do not request a refund, the funds will remain on your account for use in a future term.


    We understand that receiving refund dollars in a timely manner is important to our students. That is why Holy Names University has chosen to partner with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) for refunds and disbursements. TMS offers students more options and faster access to your refund dollars. With TMS, access to your money is just a few clicks away.

    Let’s get started!
