Why with most schools with campuses they send out refund checks 2-4weeks after classes start and online schools wait 2-3 months?
Every school has its own protocol for dispersing financial aid. This is all dependent on their working with the lending sources, department of education, and their own internal rules and regulations.
If you are concerned about the time it take to receive your financial aid, I would contact your financial aid officer, and discuss it with them. They may have some other options for receiving your aid early.
