Changes in Enrollment Status


 

Fall and Spring Pell Grants

 
Fall and Spring Pell grants are disbursed in two payments per semester with the exception of Summer. Your first Pell grant disbursement will be based upon your enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half-time, or less than half time) at the time funds are ordered from the U.S. Department of Education. Your enrollment status will be reevaluated and adjustments to your Pell grant disbursement will be made based on your enrollment status as of the time funds are ordered for your second disbursement (recalculation date/freeze date).  You may be required to repay all or a portion of the money you receive if you withdraw from any or all of your classes. Adjustments to Pell grant disbursements will no longer be made after the second scheduled disbursement.
 
Disbursement of Grant and Loan Funds for LATE START classes.
Federal regulations REQUIRE that College of the Canyons disburse financial aid funds ONLY for classes that have already begun.  If you are enrolled in classes that begin later in the term, you WILL NOT receive federal grant or loan funds for those classes until after they have started.  If you are borrowing student loans, you WILL NOT receive your loan funds until you have BEGUN ATTENDING at least 6.0 units (half-time).
 
 

Fall and Spring SEOG and State Grants (Cal Grant, FTSSG, and CCCG)

 
Fall and Spring SEOG and state grants are disbursed based upon your enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half-time, or less than half time) at the time funds are ordered from the U.S. Department of Education, the California Student Aid Commission and the state.  Adjustments to SEOG and state grant disbursements will no longer be made after the second scheduled disbursement.

Summer Pell grants are disbursed in one payment for the semester Your Summer Pell grant disbursement will be based upon your enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half-time, or less than half time) at the time funds are ordered from the U.S. Department of Education.  No adjustments will be made due to changes in enrollment status; therefore, units added after funds are ordered will not be counted.
