Payment of Awards

The College pays all financial aid scholarship, grant, and loan awards by direct credit to student accounts on a semester basis. Payments are credited to the student accounts after they have been awarded. Students must have returned all required forms as requested to be awarded. Payments are not applied or credited until after the refund period has ended for the regular semester. Dropping credit hours and/or course withdrawal may result in the revision or cancellation of financial aid awards.

You may be able to charge your books if you have financial aid awards in excess of the amount needed to pay tuition and fees. To take advantage of this service, please contact the Financial Aid Office during the first week of class during any semester.

Financial Aid Refunds

Financial aid awards in excess of the amount needed to pay any outstanding balance owed to the College are refunded directly to students. Late financial aid awards are processed as soon as administratively possible. Late refund checks are issued to students throughout the processing year. In general, students can expect to receive their refund check within 14 days of the date their financial aid is paid to their student account, assuming that classes have started, the refund period has ended and there is no change in their enrollment or other eligibility criteria.
