Disbursement and Refund Information 2016-2017

What does disbursement mean?

Disbursement is the process of turning your financial aid offer into a payment for your account. You must meet all eligibility requirements in order for the financial aid office to request a disbursement of funds. The disbursement process takes approximately 3 business days to complete, and funds will not be refunded to you until 3 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 Refund of the Student’s Financial Aid will be transmitted to BankMobile on the following Thursday.

Pell Grant

These grants are disbursed in two payments per semester. Your Pell payment will be based upon your enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half time, less than half time) at the time of the calculation.

Prior to the second disbursement, your 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 students’ 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.

Classes officially added after the following semester deadlines will not be funded:

             Fall 2016         End of 9th week

             Spring 2017     End of 8th week

            Summer 2017  To be determined

Full –Time Student Success Grant

Direct Subsidized and Direct Unsubsidized Loans

Disbursements for loans are made in two payments per semester. Loans are disbursed after the end of the sixth week.

Scholarships

Disbursements for scholarships are made in one payment each term after the funds have been received from the funding source.
