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 the Go KCTCS! Student Service Center at 855-464-2244 with any questions regarding your refund date.

Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

The HCC Financial Aid Office is processing aid for the current academic year. Students are required to submit all financial aid paperwork prior these deadlines. Failure to do so may result in being dropped from classes prior to the start of the term per the college’s drop for non-payment policy as published in the current schedule of classes.

Fall - July 15th
Spring - December 1st
Summer - April 1st
