Payment of Books and Supplies Policy
If your financial aid has been finalized and eligibility determined approximately 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester, and you are eligible for a financial aid refund, you will receive your first financial aid payment of Pell Grant funds the week before Fall or Spring semester begins. These funds are available to purchase your books, supplies, and other educational expenses. If you have eligibility for Summer Intersession, funds are generally available during the second week of school due to the time necessary to evaluate Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
The amount is determined based on the number of units you are enrolled in as of the freeze date. Check the "Account Summary by Term" section of WebSTAR the week before school begins to determine if you will have funds available.
Please refer to the Financial Aid Payment page for the schedule of disbursement dates.
