Grand Canyon University / financial aid stipend check

1 United States Review updated:

GCU issued the stipend check on 9/20/2017 of $3254, and the incorrect answer was in the system. Which I have totally taken ownership on that issue. I had asked for a stop payment at that time because didn't want someone trying to cash that check. But was told there was a 21 day wait period. Now, during that time was concerned that someone would try to cash that check and I would still be responsible for paying that loan money back. Now, I am told that the stop payment was requested but I can not find out status or when a new check will be issued. I really don't understand why there are so many vague answers.

    When do you usually get your stipend check? Because I have asked and haven't received an answer. Do it usually take a month?

    @skye35 What is disappointing is I banked on the financial aid for books an expenses. I didn't get any funds until I completed my first class online and was half way through my 2nd class online before I got it. If I hadn't paid extra for urgent processing, it would have been well over 2 months before I received my funds

    My stipend said an amount and now it says $0. Does that mean it was sent?

    @Jacy Sifuentes Yes. Depending on where you are in the US it can take 2 to 5 days. I am in Tennessee and if they mail on a Monday I receive it on a Saturday.

    @Alliyuah Reeves Same here my financial aid posted on the 5th and my counselor just told me I would receive the check by the 26th which I don't think is true.

    Does anyone know how often stipend checks are disbursed? Some say after every 2 classes but I’m not so sure...

    Did anyone ever get theirs and how long does it take for it to post to your account?

    @Dj2018 It is an extremely SLOW process. I ended up having to go to my bank and apply for a personal loan to buy books because I couldn't get my financial aid in time to buy books.

    @neeah That means that the financial aid you've been awarded has hit your account. Your school expenses have been paid for and if their is a refund check it will be made out to you. The negative is the amount of your refund stpend check that will be mailed to you within 30 days from the time you noticed it had the negative sign.
