When do I get my money?

For Grants: for Pell Grants, SEOG Grants, and Cal Grants, students will be paid twice a semester.

Once an award has been posted on the Financial Aid portal screen - the processing for that disbursement takes approximately  7 to 10 days.

The first computer disbursement will be during the first week of the fall and spring terms. The actual
check will be mailed 7 to 10 days later.

The second computer disbursement will be made on the day after the FA Census date. For the Fall 2013 semester the second disbursement date will be October 29. For the Spring 2014 semester the second disbursement date will be April 29. The checks will be mailed from 7 to 10 days later.

It is the students' responsibility to update their mailing address information in Corsair Connect-Student Profile as checks will automatically be sent to whatever address is in the SMC system at the time of mailing.
