  11. Click the Authorization button to run the authorization process for the disbursement ID of a specific financial aid item type for the displayed term. Authorization uses global and financial aid item type disbursement rules to determine if the award can be authorized.


    If authorization is not successful, the process generates a message explaining the reason for failure. If authorization fails, your institution's business processes determine whether any corrective action is required by the student, financial aid office, or another department to resolve the failure.


    After authorization is successful, the Disbursement button becomes available.

    Step 11

    This button is only available for use after successful authorization of the award.


    Click this button to start a disbursement program and send a “quick post” of funds to the student’s account in Student Financials.


    If the student does not already have a student account set up, sending the disbursement also establishes the student's account.

    Step 13
  14. Click the Disbursement button.

    Step 14

You have successfully manually disbursed financial aid to a student.
