Disbursement of Federal / State Funds

If the amount of student aid exceeds the amount owed for tuition and fees, students will receive the residual amount in the form of a check or direct deposit. Each term, the WSCC Cashier's Office will post a notice indicating the date distribution will begin. A provision for books and supplies will be made available to the students who have met all financial aid eligibility requirements and have a credit balance on the student account at least 10 days prior to the start of the term. The remaining balance of aid will be distributed to a student within 14 days of the date it was created or within 14 days of the first day of class. Attendance is requirement and must be confirmed prior to the remaining balance of aid being released. Students whose aid is not completed during the initial distribution will have their balance of aid amount distributed to them in the next available transfer cycle.

You will not receive a paper award letter via mail. However, you may print your award information by accessing your StarNET account (Financial Aid/Award/Award for Aid Year/Award Overview).

Students are encouraged to check their StarNET accounts to see their up-to-date status.
