Admissions & Aid

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.

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

For Work Study Jobs

Payments will be on the 10th and the 25th of each month. (Generally, the pay checks will be mailed around three weeks after the end of the two week period.)
