Financial aid disbursements will initially be prorated based on units of enrollment. At “census date” financial aid eligibility will be re-evaluated. Your award may be revised based on actual census date enrollment.
Each student has an account showing registration fees, tuition, course fees and payments to the account. All your financial aid, excluding Cal Grant Access, will be applied to these charges. Any balance of funds will be delivered through the students desired Higher One option. Disbursements are usually processed on Wednesdays.
Students enrolled and NOT ATTENDING CLASSES must return aid received to the Student Financial Services Office and officially withdraw from those classes.
If you wish to cancel all or a portion of the loans included in a disbursement, (i.e. Federal Stafford, Perkins or Nursing), return the check and provide the Student Financial Services Office with a cancellation request no later than 14 days from the date of the check.
The Registrar will be notified to disenroll students from classes if fees are not paid by the 5th week of the semester.
