Disbursement of Funds:

Students must complete a refund application on BOSS in order for the disbursement to be processed by the Campus Bursary.

The standard payments days are Friday of each week, unless otherwise stated by the Campus Bursary.

Students must advise the OSF via email that they are registered for Semester 11 each academic year in order for the semester 11 disbursement to be created,  this is to prevent awards to students who do not register or requests Leave of Absences without advising the OSF.



Before graduating from the UWI (in the final year of the programme), students are required to complete Exit Counselling and advise or provide evidence of same to the OSF.

        Academic counselling would be provided through the Campus Registrar’s office.
