  • Receipt of Financial Aid –

    Students with a credit balance due to financial aid amounts will not receive a refund until attendance has been verified for all classes.  Recipients will be notified via email to their MyDSCC inbox when any disbursements are made and a refund is processed.

    A “snapshot” of a student’s schedule will be made on the night of the second business day after classes begin. Federal financial aid (Federal Pell Grant and FSEOG) will be calculated based on enrollment as of this date.  Adjustments may result in repayment of funds received.

    Federal grant payments are made in one payment per semester, at the beginning of the semester or after the financial aid is processed and eligibility is determined. Student workers are paid on the last working day of the month. Federal Direct Student Loans are disbursed in two equal disbursements per loan period.  First-time, first-year borrowers will receive federal loan funds no earlier than 30 days after classes begin.

    All students should be prepared to purchase their textbooks by the first day of class. Students with a credit balance due to financial aid amounts will not receive a refund until attendance has been verified for all classes. Recipients will be notified via email to their MyDSCC inbox when any disbursements are made and a refund is processed. Financial aid recipients who have met all admissions and financial aid conditions to receive federal, state or other sources of financial aid and have a credit balance on their account from excess financial aid after tuition and fees are paid, can submit a Book Voucher request and use their excess financial aid to purchase books at the DSCC Bookstore prior to receiving a refund.
