When do I get my money?

For Grants: Pell, SEOG, and Cal Grants -students will be paid twice a semester.

Once an award has been posted on the Financial Aid portal screen - the processing for that disbursement
takes approximately  7 to 10 days.

The first computer disbursement will be during the first week of the fall and spring terms. The actual
check will be mailed 7 to 10 days later.

The second computer disbursement will be made after the FA Census date. For the Fall 2015 semester
the second disbursement date will be the week of November 3. For the Spring 2016 semester the second        disbursement date will be the week of April 26. The checks will be mailed from 7 to 10 days AFTER the
disbursement date. 

It is the students' responsibility to update their mailing address information in Corsair Connect -Student
Profile as checks will automatically be sent to whatever address is in the SMC system at the time of mailing.
