CCD Book Advance Program
Students! Wondering what your balances are and how much funding is left?
About the Program
Effective Fall 2011, the Community College of Denver (CCD) will disburse CCD financial aid funds after the standard full 15 week term add/drop period each semester. The end of the add/drop period is defined as the last day to receive a 100% tuition and fee refund for the standard term.
After disbursement, credit balance refund will be posted to the student’s accounts and paid to their Higher One Account or by the student’s designated method. To provide funding for the students to purchase books and supplies prior to the first disbursement each term, CCD will issue a book advance to qualifying CCD students. This is an advance of the student’s expected CCD financial aid credit balance and will be deducted from the student’s first disbursement for the term.
Students who drop their courses, do not attend their courses, or do not otherwise qualify for a credit refund must repay any book advance issued.
Book Advance Eligibility
To be eligible for a book advance a student must meet the following criteria:
Note: Authorized aid is aid that is ‘ready’ to pay but the scheduled disbursement date has not yet arrived. First-time borrowers subject to the mandatory 30 day hold on their loan funds will be included as having ‘authorized’ loans.
Book Advance Application
Eligible students do not need to apply. A list will be sent from the Financial Aid Office to the Business Office for processing.
Book Advance Program Availability
Students are processed as they become eligible for the book advance, funds may be available the first week of classes or prior to the first week of classes (based on eligibility). Students will be notified by the Business Office when the advance is placed on their account.
Book advances will result in an increase in the amount the student is required to pay CCD. When CCD Financial Aid Funds are disbursed after the add/drop period, the book advance and the tuition and fees due will be deducted. The remaining credit balance refund will be deposited to the student's account.
