As student's financial aid files are completed and processed, students are packaged and awarded eligible aid. Students are notified via their College issued email and asked to review their awards in MyMendo.
Financial aid disbursements will be based on your enrollment as of the day after the Last Day to Drop without a Grade Notation.
Pell Grants and Direct Loans are issued in two payments each semester. All other awards ie. FSEOG, Cal Grants, EOPS Grants, are issued in one payment each semester.
For the first disbursement we will pay you based on your enrollment at the time we process your payment. 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. Late start enrollment after the freeze date will not be included in your financial aid calculation.
