* Students who have one term only loans will have their loans split into 2 disbursements as per federal regulations. The second disbursement may not be made until the student reaches the midpoint of the semester.

The Freeze Date is a predetermined date when financial aid freezes a student’s enrollment. Enrollment hours on that day will determine the amount of aid a student will have disbursed to their account. You must be registered for all classes you wish to take in that semester (including late start classes) or you will not be eligible to receive financial aid for that class.

The Disbursement Date is the date financial aid sends an electronic file to the college’s business office that switches your anticipated aid funds to real funds in preparation for checks being issued.

The Refund Date (Tentative) is the date that the college’s business office cuts checks and prepares for mailing. The published date is tentative and is subject to change at the discretion of the business office’s processing schedule.
