Initial financial aid awards are based upon the expectation of full time enrollment (12 units or more or 8 units of 200 level series). All financial aid recipients will have their eligibility recalculated based on their enrollment at census date (the end of a term's fourth week of instruction).

  • Director loans do not automatically disburse to student enrolled in less than 12 units. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you will not be enrolling in at least 12 units for the term.

If you drop units, withdraw, or fail to attend class, you must contact the Financial Aid Office at (559) 278 2182.

  • Dropping units after receiving disbursement(s) may require you to repay some or all of the aid you received based upon your eligibility recalculation.

If you are disbursed a Teach Grant, Perkins, Nursing, or Federal Direct Loan Funds and you wish to cancel all or a portion of these funds you must provide Student Financial Services with a cancellation request no later than 14 days from the date of the disbursement.

Disbursements for most programs are prorated based on your actual enrollment at the time of the disbursement.
