Aid Disbursements and Rebates

Once you complete all steps, your aid will disburse onto your NUM student account. Learn how aid disbursements and rebates are applied toward your bill, how to pay your remaining balance or receive aid rebates, and how changing your enrollment level can impact your bill and your rebates.
