Refund Disbursement Information

  • All refund checks are required to be mailed to the address on file with admissions. We will not hold checks.  To update your address with admissions, please email sccadmissions@sandhills.edu.
  • Students cannot receive federal or state funding that exceeds their cost of attendance.
  • Remaining financial aid funds will be disbursed each semester after the Financial Aid Office verifies the student’s attendance through faculty rosters. A refund will not be processed until all instructors have confirmed student class participation.
  • Refund disbursement dates are based on the deadlines for attendance rosters, which occurs after the ten percent point of a course.
  • Funds are not disbursed for courses until they begin, and attendance has been confirmed.
