The payments will be available as follows:
All checks and CUNY Scholar Support Debit Cards can be used at the QCC campus book store. If you have not already signed up for the CUNY Scholars Support Debit Card or Direct Deposit, your Fall 2013 Financial Aid refund will be sent to you via paper check. You can sign up for the Debit Card or Direct Deposit for future financial aid payments.
The Pell book advance process is a two part process in CUNYfirst. The first part of this process refers to disbursement dates. Disbursement dates in CUNYfirst indicate that leftover Pell grant funds have been applied to the students account. This process runs every Monday. The second part of this process allows the leftover funds payable to the student. This process runs every Friday. If you have the CUNY pre-paid debit card or direct deposit you will receive your funds on the Friday of the week your leftover funds have been disbursed. If you opt for a paper check to be mailed to your residence, the check is then mailed on that Friday. All students should check their CUNYfirst accounts for information regarding both disbursement dates and dates payable to the student. The dates are as follows:
Disbursemnt Dates Payable to Student
The 9/03/2013 disbursement date is on a Tuesday due to Labor Day on 9/02/2013 and all CUNY campuses are closed.
All students who have not yet applied for financial aid and/or have not yet submitted requested documentation must allow up to 4 weeks for processing, so please do so immediately to reduce the delay in receiving your book advance.
Please note, all students who withdraw from some or all classes and/or do not attend classes will be responsible to repay some or all of the book advance funds. Please contact the Office of Financial Services for instructions or questions regarding how to return the funds if you think this applies to you.
