FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION

2021-2022 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, 2021 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.

Important Things to Know:

New Policy effective for the 2021-22 award year. The Census Date for classes to be counted towards Financial Aid is now based on the LAST CLASS ADDED to your schedule. All units you're enrolled in at the time you add your last class for the term will determine the Census Date in order for units to count towards your financial aid. Students who are waitlisted and have already received their Pell payment based on their original enrollment, may receive the difference based on the Census Date of the last class added, at a later payment date. Payments can increase, be reduced or remain the same, based upon your enrollment at the time your last class is added to your schedule. A recalculation will occur for all late start classes added later in the semester.

Pell Grant is normally disbursed in three payments per semester. First payment is 12%, second payment is 13% and third payment is 25% of the annual award.

Emergency Funds: CARES & Warrior Emergency Grants are not disbursed on a set schedule so please allow approximately 2-3 weeks for those funds to arrive after being awarded.

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.
