Not very long, in my experience. Once FAFSA releases the funds to the school, they hold them for approximately 10-15 days before releasing "excess" funds. These come easily to me, because I have the VA paying for my education, although I understand that FAFSA is intended to pay for the tuition FIRST. So if you don't have third party reimbursement like your employer or the VA, you might not see as much of your FAFSA back. Once your FAFSA has posted and UOP has determined the excess funds, they will send you a form to sign and either fax or scan/email back. In the next couple of weeks you can expect to receive a check by mail from the Apollo Group. Best of luck.
