Disbursed When? 

In most instances, financial aid funds will be disbursed (applied to pay your account balance) after the start of the semester. If there are any excess funds, this is referred to as your refund. Please check our financial aid announcements, on the right-hand side of the page, for exact dates. Some exceptions are listed below:

  • Incorrect address - If you need to change your address, please submit the Change of Name and Address Form to the Student Center. Having an incorrect address on file may delay the time that it will take to receive your aid.
  • Changes in enrollment - If you withdraw from any of your classes after the beginning of the term, you may be required to repay a portion of the funds you received.
  • Late-start classes - If you're enrolled in late-start classes, the disbursement of your funds may be delayed by as much as a month.
  • Non-attendance - If you don’t attend the classes for which you receive financial aid, you may have to repay the funds you received.  You won’t be able to get an academic transcript or re-enroll at JCCC until you’ve finished repaying that money.
