FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION

IMPORTANT 2019-2020 FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION

 

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 and enrollment status. 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.

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 July 1, 2019 will be paid on the 1st scheduled disbursement of the semester. Students who do not meet the July 1st priority deadline will be paid approximately 3-4 weeks after they receive notification that their financial aid file has been awarded.

Below are the disbursement states for Pell Grant and SEOG only. Link here for the Cal Grant Disbursement Schedule.

Important Things to Know:

The Freeze Date for Fall 2019 is September 9, 2019. Students must be registered for all courses by the FREEZE DATE in order for all units to count for financial aid.

Students who are waitlisted for a course(s) and have already received their Pell payment based on their original enrollment, may receive the difference, for course(s) officially added by the FREEZE DATE, at a later payment date.

Pell Grant is normally disbursed in three payments per semester.

Students awarded Cal Grants and other aid will have paper checks mailed to their address on file. Please keep your address up to date with the school!

Winter Disbursements: Winter units are added to Spring units for Pell Grant purposes and will be paid during Spring disbursements. Payment of Pell and Cal Grant is prorated based on a student's enrollment status per term.
