Pell Grant
At the time the award is made, the financial aid office assumes students will be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours). However, the financial aid office checks student enrollment at the time the Pell Grant is disbursed. Pell Grant is generally disbursed after the 30% point in the semester. Financial aid payments will be based on enrollment at the 10% point of the semester. Financial aid payments for any course that does not start at the beginning of the semester will not be paid out until after the course has started and attendance has been verified.

State Grants
At the time the award is made, the financial aid office assumes students will be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours). The NC Community College Grant maximum award is based on 15 or more credit hours. However, the financial aid office checks student enrollment at the time the State Grants are disbursed. State Grants are generally disbursed after the 30% point in the semester. Financial aid payments will be based on enrollment at the 10% point of the semester. Financial aid payments for any course that does not start at the beginning of the semester will not be paid out until after the course has started and attendance has been verified.

Scholarships
Students must be meeting all scholarship requirements. Scholarships are generally disbursed after the 30% point in the semester. Scholarship payments will be based on enrollment at the 10% point of the semester. Scholarship payments for any course that does not start at the beginning of the semester may not be paid out until after the course has started and attendance has been verified.

Paying Your Bills
After the financial aid has been electronically disbursed to your student account at JCC (e.g. after going through application and receiving financial aid processes), the Business Office deducts all the billed costs from your aid, such as tuition and fees and charges in the bookstore.

Refunds
If the amount billed to your account is less than amount of the financial aid for the semester, then the student is issued a refund for the difference. Students are required to make a refund selection at refundselection.com.
