Fee Waivers

If your award letter indicates California College Promise Grant (previously known as the Board of Governors Fee Waiver, BOG) you are eligible to have your enrollment fees waived for Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semester, if you remain academically eligible. This waiver will automatically show up when you register and will be reflected on your registration statement. It is not a cash award. The California College Promise Grant only covers the enrollment fee and does NOT cover mandatory the Health Fee, class material fee or other fees. If you paid your enrollment fees and then were awarded the fee waiver you can apply for a refund through the college Business Services Office.

Pell Grants

Pell Grants are normally disbursed in two payments each semester and according to the disbursement schedule. The amount of your disbursement is based on the number of units you are actively enrolled in 14 days prior to the disbursement date.

  • If you drop units your second disbursement will be adjusted/reduced/canceled
  • If you drop units you may be in overpayment. You will be notified of an overpayment by e-mail
  • If you are not enrolled full-time your Pell Grant will be prorated based on your enrollment status
  • If your annual Pell Grant Award is less than $865 you may not qualify if your enrollment status for the semester is less than full-time (12 units)
  • If you annual Pell Grant Award is less than $4265 you may not qualify if your enrollment status is less than half-time (6 units)

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

SEOG funds are disbursed once per semester. You must be actively enrolled in at least 6 units.

Cal Grant

Cal Grant funds are disbursed once per semester. You must be actively enrolled in at least 6 units. Cal Grant disbursement dates are estimated based on the date we expect to receive Cal Grant funds from the state.

Federal Direct Student Loans

Loan funds are generally disbursed once a semester. You must be actively enrolled in 6 units. Loan funds for new borrowers may be held for disbursement until 30 days after the start of the semester. Loan funds for the semester are released in two disbursements. If you are requesting a loan for your final semester of your academic program your loan amount may be prorated.

Financial Aid Disbursement Dates for 2018-19

The disbursement dates provided here are for informational purposes only. Check processing begins 14 days prior to the date of disbursement. If you miss a scheduled disbursement date based on the date you completed your file or added classes you will be paid on the next scheduled disbursement. An e-mail confirming the date and amount of your disbursement will be sent to your college issued e-mail account approximately one-week prior to the date of disbursement.

FINANCIAL AID REPEAT POLICY

If you are repeating any class(es) you may be enrolled in units that are not financial aid payable. These units will be excluded from the total units considered for your enrollment status for the semester. Review the Financial Aid Repeat Policy accessible from the Financial Aid homepage. These regulations affect all repeated classes regardless of whether or not you previously received any financial aid for the class/units.

OVERPAYMENTS

By accepting funds you agree to all term and policies. It is your responsibility to review all documents under “Student’s Right to Know”. If you withdraw from all classes, drop below half-time, or fail all of your classes you may be required to repay all or a portion of the financial aid you received for the semester.
