Financial Aid Refunds (Disbursements)
Disbursement dates and deadlines are determined by Federal, State, District and/or institutional regulations and policies. New financial aid applicants to the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) will be mailed a card, the myLACCDcard to their mailing address on file with Admissions & Records Office. The myLACCDcard is the key for students selecting their refund preference. Students can choose the method of how they receive their financial aid refunds. It is critical that students update their address on file with Admissions & Records Office or Financial Aid Office to ensure receipt of their myLACCDcard. For more information about the myLACCDcard, please visit https://mylaccdcard.higheroneaccount.com/
Fall/Spring Refunds: the first refunds for fall and spring semesters are made available the first week of the semester for students who meet the FAFSA priority application deadline and completed their financial aid file by the priority deadline. The amount of the financial aid refund will be based on the student's enrollment status at the time of the disbursement run. Disbursements will be adjusted if enrollment increases or decreases. Payment for late-starting classes cannot be issued until the class begins. After the second refund of each semester, no further award adjustments can be made based on late enrollment. (Exception: Short-term classes that start after the second refund date and winter classes). Students are encouraged to logon to the Student Information System (SIS) at http://bit.ly/LACCDSIS to view their financial aid refund information. Please note that students with an approved Financial Aid Extension Petition must be enrolled in approved units to be eligible for financial aid refund.
