  • Entering Student (1Ls) Cash Advances

    Whenever you have anticipated credits on your student account that exceed your billed expenses (tuition, fees, etc), our office reviews the potential credit for accuracy and, once confirmed, authorizes the credit to be direct deposited into your U.S. bank account. This process is known as the Cash Advance process.

    Entering 1Ls may qualify for two August cash advances;

    • One in which we advance the FULL ACADEMIC YEAR books and supplies allowance in your student budget; and
    • Another for your remaining fall semester credits to be used for the rest of your room, board and personal expenses. This should be budgeted to last you for half of the 9-month academic year (September – January 15th). You’ll receive your spring cash advance in December which should be budgeted for January 16 – end of May.

    Early Books and Supplies Advance (1Ls ONLY) – As an entering 1L you will qualify for an early “Books and Supplies” advance of $1,625 on August 16th if BOTH of the following are true:

    Note: Only loans that you have applied for by August 10, 2022, will be reflected as anticipated credits on your student account and count towards your eligibility for this early advance. 

    Fall Registration Advance for 1Ls – You will qualify for an additional advance on August 26th based on the remainder of your fall semester credit balance if ALL of the following are true:

    • You continue to have a credit on your student account; AND
    • You have signed up for direct deposit through your student account by August 23, 2022; AND
    • You have completed the registration process and have been cleared to register by the HLS Admissions Office by August 24, 2022.

    Note: Only loans that we have certified by August 23, 2022, will be reflected as anticipated credits on your student account and count towards your eligibility for this fall registration advance. 

    1Ls who miss the Early Books and Supplies Advance Deadlines will receive ONE combined cash advance for the semester on August 26th provided you meet all of the conditions outlined above for fall registration advances.

  • Returning Student Cash Advances (and Transfers)

    Fall Registration Advance for Returning Students (and Transfers)

    You will qualify for a fall cash advance for your fall semester credit balance on August 26, 2022 if ALL of the following are true:

    • You have a credit on your student account; AND
    • You are signed up for direct deposit (and/or have updated your direct deposit information if needed) through your student account by August 23, 2022; AND
    • You have completed the registration process and have been cleared to register by the HLS Registrar by August 24, 2022.

    Note: Only loans that we have certified by August 23, 2022, will be reflected as anticipated credits on your student account and count towards your eligibility for this fall registration advance. 

  • Note For All Students NOT on Financial Aid

    Signing up for direct deposit is a good idea even if you are not on financial aid since it is likely that you will have a credit on your account at some point during your time here at HLS.

    For example, you might pay your student account notice in full and then decide after that you want to waive the optional student health insurance.  Once the waiver is processed and the insurance charge is removed from your account, a credit will automatically show that is now due back to you.  Having direct deposit already set up will allow us to issue your credit refund in the most secure and fastest way.
