Financial Aid Disbursements

Before funds are applied to your account, you must meet the federal requirements (i.e. course start dates, academic activity, minimum registered hours, etc.).

Pell Funds

  • The Census Date is used to determine your enrollment status for Pell Grant awarding. Review our Census Date knowledge base article for additional information.
  • Pell funds are not applied to your account until at least one of your courses has begun and your instructor provides documentation of academic activity in the course.

Loan Funds

  • You will receive an email when loan funds have been applied to your Baker College account.
  • New students receiving their first student loan: By regulation, we cannot apply loan funds to your account until 30 days after your first class begins.  
  • Students who requested a one-semester only loan: Federal regulations require that loans for a single term be paid in two disbursements. To qualify for the second disbursement, students must be registered at least half time after the midpoint of the semester.  The second disbursement is applied to your account after that date.

In order to receive your excess aid refund timely, be sure to select your refund preference . Additional information about the refund process is available here: BankMobile Disbursements or by visiting https://bankmobiledisbursement.com/refundchoices/.

Course Withdrawals

While we hope you do not need to withdraw from any courses, we want you to be aware of the withdrawal and refund policies. Please review the Class Withdrawal and Refund Policies for details.

If you do not attend or if you withdraw from any classes, your financial aid eligibility may be affected. Non-attendance or withdrawals may result in a loss of financial aid and a balance due to the College. Please contact the OneStop Office prior to withdrawing from classes.
