Financial Aid Refund Process
Financial aid funds will be automatically applied to your tuition when you register for classes each quarter. Students are responsible for paying any remaining balances by the payment due date each quarter. Visit paying your tuition for more details. Remaining financial aid funds will come back as a refund disbursement.
Requirements for receiving funds
When you receive funds, you are certifying that:
You are attending, or will attend, all your classes.
If you drop courses to a lower enrollment level or do not commence attendance in all classes after the disbursement is sent to BMTX, Inc., and before the census date (10th day of term fall, winter, spring, and 8th day summer term) you the student will be responsible to repay the amount owed based on that change in enrollment level. The money owed back is a Pell Grant overpayment. Students that do not pay back the overpayment are not eligible for future financial aid.
If at the end of the quarter, you have not completed the required credits based on the level of financial aid you received you may owe a repayment. In addition, you may be placed on financial aid warning or suspension.
