Receiving Stipends

Graduate students, learn how you'll receive your fellowship or traineeship stipend funds.

If you receive fellowship or traineeship stipend payments, Student Business Services will disburse the funds via direct deposit.

The stipend will first appear as a credit on your student account. However, the funds will not pay for any charges on your student account. You'll receive your stipend in full, normally by the first of the month, via direct bank deposit. (See the table below for monthly credit and bank-deposit dates.)

If you're not enrolled in direct deposit, you're encouraged to enroll now.
