Financial Aid refunds occur each semester, approximately 3-4 weeks after the semester start date.

Refunds are only sent through direct deposit or paper check.

Direct deposits are processed four days a week, Monday through Thursday. We encourage you to sign up for direct deposit because your refund will be received much faster! 

Paper checks are processed once a week, on Fridays. Financial aid checks are mailed to your current address on file with JCCC.

If you have late-start classes or if you are a single semester loan borrower, your refund could be delayed. If you have a late-start course eligible for Pell Grant funds, those funds should post the week following the class start date. 

Student loans require enrollment in 6 or more eligible hours at the time of each applicable disbursement.  Most loans are Fall/Spring if you’re attending all year.  However, single semester and all Summer loans require two equal disbursements, one at the beginning of the semester, at the first applicable disbursement, and the other at the midpoint.
