Financial Aid Payment for Enrollment in Second Mini Session

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Beginning with the fall 2011 semester, students enrolled in the second mini session will not receive the financial aid associated with those credits until approximately three weeks after the start date of the second mini session.

Example:  A student is eligible for a Federal Pell Grant of $2,775 for full time enrollment during the fall 2011 semester.  The student is enrolled in six credits offered during the full and/or first mini session, both of which begin on August 15; and six credits in the second mini session, which begins on October 12.

Aid for the six credits associated with full semester or first mini session classes beginning on August 15 ($1,388) will be processed.  The student will receive a check for that amount of aid, less tuition, fees, and bookstore purchases charged against pending financial aid.  Excess financial aid checks will be mailed on September 19.

Aid for the six credits associated with the second mini session classes beginning on October 12 ($1,387) will be processed after the start date of the second mini session and reduced by any amount still owed CFCC.  A check for the remaining funds will be mailed to the student approximately 3 weeks later.
