FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE DISBURSEMENT SCHEDULE FOR 2017-2018

 

All financial aid awards posted under MyECC are estimated awards. Most federal and state financial aid payments made to students are based upon cumulative satisfactory academic progress. Students who are on probation due to not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will not receive a disbursement unless they have an approved appeal. Please visit the Satisfactory Academic Progress webpage for more information on the SAP Policy and how to submit a SAP Appeal.

All disbursement dates are estimated; the Financial Aid Office cannot guarantee the date you will receive your funds. We recommend you have an alternate plan if there is a delay in your funding.

Students who meet the priority deadline of June 1, 2017 will be paid on the 1st scheduled disbursement of the semester. Students who do not meet the June 1st priority deadline will be paid approximately 3-4 weeks after they receive notification that their financial aid file has been awarded.
