Financial Aid Disbursements & Refunds:

Financial aid generally gets disbursed to student accounts in the Business Office within 3 weeks of classes starting . For students with credit balances as a result of receiving financial aid, the Business Office is required to mail refund checks within 14 days of the credit balance being created. UPDATE: For Spring 2017 classes that started January 17, we expect refund checks will get mailed out from our Business Office on or around Feb 13.

First time students who are expecting a loan refund must wait 30 days after the term has started.

For classes starting March 20, we will update you regarding refunds in the upcoming days.

COMING OCT. 1, 2016: You might have heard about some changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Don’t worry; these changes were put into place in hopes to make the FAFSA process easier.

 Starting with the 2017-18 FAFSA, there will be two major and permanent changes:

  •  You’ll be able to submit your FAFSA starting Oct. 1, 2016 rather than January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to submit the FAFSA every year as early as Oct. 1. If you file earlier, you’ll have earlier indication of how much you (the student) will receive in financial aid. Filing earlier helps guarantee first consideration of financial aid eligibility. NOTE: If you are a Maine resident, file your FAFSA by May 1, 2017 in order to be considered for the Maine grant of up to approx.. $1,700.00.
  • Starting with 2017-18 FAFSA, You’ll use earlier income and tax information. For example, on the 2017-18 FAFSA, you and your parents, as appropriate, will report your 2015 income and tax information (not 2016 income tax information). This is easier because you’ll already have done your 2015 taxes by the time you have filed the FAFSA. You won’t have to estimate your income and taxes anymore! Most of you will be eligible to automatically import your tax information directly into the FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in the FAFSA.
  • YCCC students that file the 1718 FAFSA by Oct. 30 will be entered in a drawing for 1 of 2 $50.00 book store gift cards (compliments of the YCCC Foundation)

 FEDERAL STUDENT FINANCIAL AID PENALTIES FOR DRUG VIOLATIONS:

Rules that apply to employees and students under the Drug Free Workplace Act In November of 1988, the United States Congress enacted the Anti-Drug Abuse Act which contains a section called “Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.” The law requires employers who receive federal funds to notify employees that drug abuse is prohibited in the workplace; establish a drug free awareness program; require each employee to notify the college of any criminal conviction for violations occurring in the work place; and impose sanctions or remedial actions for convicted employees. In addition, a court may suspend or terminate an individual’s eligibility for federal benefits, including student financial assistance, if that individual is convicted of certain drug offenses. ◊ Please refer to the college’s Alcohol and Drug brochure for more information, and visit the FAFSA website “drug question” at www.fafsa.gov.
