Guide to Financial Aid, Scholarships & Other Resources
What to Expect
Step one is applying for aid through the FAFSA online.
It takes about one week for CCD to receive your financial aid application (FAFSA) after you submit it online. Once we receive your FAFSA, we will send a notice listing any missing information to your mailing address (new students only) or your CCD-issued student email address. Follow up with our team to complete your file so we can see if you qualify for financial aid. After submitting required documents to our office, allow one to two weeks for your paperwork to be processed and your aid to be awarded. Once you've been awarded financial aid, we will send you an award notice.
Receiving Your Funds
Financial aid funds are released into your tuition balance after the last day to drop a full semester class each semester (Census Date). Book advances are automatically sent to you (if you are eligible) before classes begin and every week until Census Date. Refunds arrive in your BankMobile bank account via direct deposit after 3:00 p.m. the Friday after financial aid funds are released.
