Completion of your Financial Aid & Loans: To ensure your financial aid funds are paid timely, please verify that you have completed all required paperwork and processes prior to August 1, 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year. Watch for emails from Financial Aid and monitor your status by logging in to your Student Financial Aid Portal. If you have questions about your financial aid awards or requested documents, please contact OneStop.

2021/2022 FAFSA  Available October 1, 2020

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. Additional information about the Census Date is available on the OneStop Portal.
  • 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.

Excess Aid Refunds: Students who receive financial aid or loans in excess of their charges are issued a refund through BankMobile. In order to receive your excess aid refund timely, be sure to activate your refund preference (you can select to have your refund applied to a BankMobile Vibe debit card account, or have the funds sent directly to your bank account). Additional information about the refund process is available here: BankMobile

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.
