Disbursement dates and deadlines are mandated by Federal, State, District and/or Institutional regulations and policies, and must be met or applications cannot be accepted or processed.
Grants and Federal Work-Study warrants are sent by mail to the address on file in the Admissions Office, or are transferred electronically to the student�s bank account, or on rare occasions sent to the College Business Office. It is your responsibility to report address and phone number changes to the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices.
If your award includes a Loan and you choose to accept it, you will receive disbursement instructions during the Loan Counseling Session.
To expedite receipt of your funds, we encourage you to sign up for Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT). EFT is a service which eliminates the need to issue a check for student financial aid grants. To sign up you must go to the College Business Office to complete an EFT Authorization Form. Be sure to bring a voided check or a photocopy marked �VOID� if your financial aid funds will be deposited into a checking account. If you are depositing your financial aid funds into a savings account, a copy of the top half of your bank statement showing the account number and branch address is needed. Deposit slips are not sufficient.
Disbursements will be adjusted if enrollment is less than full-time. Supplemental check runs occur throughout the academic year. Disbursements will be adjusted if enrollment increases or decreases. Payment for late starting classes will not be issued until the class begins. After the second disbursement run date of the Fall and Spring semesters, no further award adjustments will be made. The following chart is an example of a financial aid disbursement schedule.
