Disbursement and Refund Information
What does disbursement mean?
Disbursement is the process of turning a financial aid offer into a payment for an account. Students must meet all eligibility requirements in order for the financial aid office to request a disbursement of funds. The disbursement process takes approximately three business days to complete, and funds will not be refunded until three business days after they are disbursed.
The disbursements are processed on Monday of each disbursement week. The Financial Aid disbursements will first cover/pay any outstanding balances due to the college. A student's financial aid refund will be transmitted with BankMobile Disbursements on the following Thursday.
These grants are disbursed in two payments per semester. The Pell payment will be based upon enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half-time, less than half-time) at the time of the calculation.
Prior to the second disbursement, enrollment status will be reviewed. *The second payment is provided to meet the educational expenses for the remainder of the term. Payments are made throughout the semester as the student’s eligibility requirements are met.
Late starting classes must have begun for units to be included in the first disbursement otherwise they will be included on the following disbursements. Payments will be adjusted according to enrollment status.
For students whose financial aid files were incomplete at the beginning of the school year or were awarded later in the term, payments will be issued on the following disbursement dates.
