Disbursement of Federal Aid
Federal aid funds will be credited to the students’ accounts and will pay unpaid charges in the following order: tuition, fees, books, dorm and any other remaining charges. Any excess funds due to the student after the account is paid in full will be disbursed to the student in accordance with the published disbursement schedules. Students should maintain a current mailing address through Campus Connect.
Disbursement Schedules: Disbursement schedules
for Pell Grants and Stafford Loans are provided to the student with their
award letter. They are also published on this page.
Second Eight-Week Courses: Students who are enrolled in second eight-week courses along with sixteen-week courses will receive their aid disbursements according to the disbursement schedules for the full semester. If a student drops a second eight-week course(s) before it starts (without charges) or if the second eight-week course(s) does not make due to low enrollment, the student could owe an overaward of Pell Grant funds back to the Pell Program. The Pell Grant will be adjusted based on the number of hours for which the student is charged. The college will then return overawarded funds to the Pell Program and the student will owe the overaward back to the college.
Students who are enrolled only in second eight-week courses will have no aid disbursed until the 100% refund period has passed for each course. This refund deadline is printed on the student’s schedule for each course.
If you have questions regarding this procedure, you may contact the Student Services Office.
