Financial Aid News and Deadlines
Information for students with financial aid awards in PeopleSoft Spring 2018 semester:
The financial aid office is working to disburse your financial aid awards to your account. Attendance must be confirmed by your faculty members before funds can be disbursed to your account. Federal financial aid funds (Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, and Direct Loans) are adjusted based on classes that you are attending and verification that these classes are part of your degree plan.
Please note: Est (estimate) loans require additional documents – see your “to do” list for additional information.
Disbursement vs Refund
Students who are borrowing loans for the first time will not have loan funds disbursed until 30 days after the start of classes. When financial aid funds are disbursed to your account, this does not mean that the refund is available to you.
Refunds are not available for up to 14 days after funds are disbursed to the account.Refunds are disbursed by BankMobile. If you have questions regarding BankMobile, contact the Student Accounts Office at 301-846-2456.
Please check your FCC email account for information about your financial aid disbursements and refunds.
