Freeze Date (Census Date)
Financial aid disbursements will be based on your enrollment as of the day after the Last Day to Drop without a Grade Notation.
For the first disbursement we will pay you based on your enrollment at the time we process your check. At the second disbursement we will adjust your aid based on your enrollment on the financial aid freeze date, which is the day after last date to drop without a grade notation. Your Satisfactory Academic Progress will be calculated by calculating your successful completion of these classes. As always - only enroll in courses you think you can successfully complete. Continued financial aid depends on you completing 67% of the courses you enroll in a semester and maintaining a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.
You must be enrolled in late start courses by the financial aid freeze date (census date). Late start enrollment after the freeze date (census date) will not be included in your financial aid calculation.
Mendocino College has partnered with BankMobile to deliver your financial aid refund. This partnership will give students the following options for receiving financial aid funds:
- Electronic Deposit To A Bank Account - Money is transferred to a bank account account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school. Typically, it takes 1 - 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
- Electronic Deposit To A BankMobile Vibe Account - If you open a BankMobile Vibe account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school.
- Paper Check Delivered By USPS - A check is mailed the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school, provided receipt is within daily cutoff times. Typically, it takes 5 – 7 business days for the check to arrive, depending on USPS First-Class® delivery timeframes.
