Your Financial Aid Refund (Disbursement)

Pasadena City College delivers your refund with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. For more information on Pasadena City College's refund process with BankMobile Disbursements click here.

When Will You Receive Your Financial Aid Refund

Typically, you receive two refunds each term. Awards are divided into equal refund payments per semester, and you receive a percentage at the beginning of the semester and the balance before the end of the semester.

Two Exceptions:

  1. PCC disburses based on attending units. Disbursement will be based on the amount of units you are “attending/sitting in” at the time of disbursement. If you are enrolled in late-start classes, the remainder of your financial aid awards (if it applies) will be disbursed after those classes are in session.
  2. Refunds for Cal Grants and/or Direct Loans typically occur 30 days after the start of the term.

Enrollment and Refund

The amount of aid you receive depends on the number of units you are enrolled in at the time of refund. If you add or drop units before the freeze date, your refund will be adjusted accordingly. Learn More
