When Can I Expect My Refund?

Financial Aid refunds are normally issued to your preferred refund method as indicated on you HigherOne account the next Thursday after 30 days from the start of the standard term. This is due to funds being disbursed to KCTCS 30 days after the start of the term. While the following Thursday is typically when refunds are applied to student accounts and issued to HigherOne, it can depend on your preferred method of refund as to when those funds are actually available to you. Please contact HCC Financial Aid Office with any questions regarding your refund date.

Please Note:

  • If you have decided not to attend HCC please send us a letter that includes your name, student ID#, date and signature stating that decision.
  • If you drop a class before that session begins, your financial aid will be adjusted accordingly. Dropping below half-time may result in cancellation of some aid awards. It is strongly recommended that if you drop classes with the intention to add others that you drop and add classes on the same day. If you have been awarded the Pell Grant, it cannot be increased if you add a class after the Financial Aid census date.
  • You will be responsible for repaying any funds you are not eligible to receive as a result of a change with enrolled hours or in your financial aid/FAFSA data.
  • The Financial Aid Office reserves the right on behalf of HCC and the criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education to review, change and cancel an award at any time because of changes in financial and/or academic status.
  • You must report to the HCC Financial Aid Office any additional financial aid resources you receive. This includes but is not limited to: non-institutional scholarships, third party payments, veteran benefits, tuition waivers, etc.
  • Our office will be using your campus email address to communicate with you. Please frequently check your KCTCS email account for important notices.
