Financial Aid Disbursement

Financial aid disbursements for continuing students normally occur during the first week of instruction. However, for new students federal grant disbursements are made after the 45th day of school and loan disbursements after the 30th day of school. All financial aid processed will be posted and applied to room & board, tuition, and health fees first. Any remaining credit will be provided to students in the form of a refund.

Questions regarding your Financial Aid should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid at (949) 480-4042.

Refund checks are mailed or electronically transferred into your bank account. It may take up to 14 days from the date of disbursement for funds to appear in your bank account. To sign up for direct deposit, please contact the Office of Accounts Payable or Student Accounts.

If the Financial Aid award is not sufficient to cover tuition & fees in full, the student is responsible for any outstanding balance by the fee payment deadline. A late payment fee may be assessed to all past due accounts.
