DISBURSEMENT SCHEDULE

BCC has a full term disbursement schedule as well as disbursement schedules for students enrolled in modules. The basis of enrollment is a full time 18 week semester and two 9 week modules within the 18 week semester.

  1. For students enrolled in the 18 week semester with no enrollment in the later starting 9 week module: 50% disbursed the second Friday of the semester and the remaining 50% disbursed at the half way point of the semester. Enrollment is frozen at this point.
  2. For students enrolled in the first 9 week module with no enrollment in the later starting 9 week module: 50% disbursed the second Friday of the semester and the remaining 50% disbursed at the half way point of the module. Enrollment is frozen at this point.
  3. For students enrolled in the later 9 week module with no earlier enrollment: 50% disbursed the Friday before the 9 week session begins and the remaining 50% disbursed at the half way point of the module. Enrollment is frozen at this point.
  4. For students with mixed enrollment: 50% of calculated enrollment at the time enrollment begins based on the times above and the remaining 50% will be disbursed at the half way point of the final enrollment period. Enrollment is frozen at the point in time the final disbursement is made.

Overpayments are calculated at each disbursement point until enrollment is frozen. Once enrollment is frozen, Return of Title IV is calculated. Students are given a 15 day time period to make payment to BCC. Failure to pay by the deadline results in the institution reporting the students to the Department of Education for collections.

RETURN OF TITLE IV FUNDS

Students who receive federal financial assistance but withdraw from all classes after enrollment is frozen for the semester will be required to return any unearned federal funds. When a student withdraws from an institution during a payment period or period of enrollment, the institution must determine the amount of Title IV grant that the student earned as of the student’s withdrawal date. For online classes, the last date of attendance is calculated based on the last date the student had a substantial academic interaction, such as submitting an assignment, completing a quiz, posting a discussion, etc. Viewing course content will not count as a substantial interaction. The last date of attendance is verified through the Instructional Technology Center. For classes that are not online, the date the student officially withdrew from the course through the student portion is used. The last date of attendance for classes that are not online is assumed to be 50% of the attendance period. If the student was disbursed more than the amount earned, the student will be in repayment status. If it is determined there is an institutional portion, this becomes a debt the student owes the institution. Student portions are treated in the same manner as overpayments.
