Notes

  • *FAFSA application must be received by COD, all required documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid office, and file must be determined to be complete by the Financial Aid office by this date. Please note that turning in required documents does not guarantee a financial aid award or disbursement.

  • The financial aid office will send notifications to your COD student email account and actual awards will be posted on the Financial Aid Student Self Service Portal.

  • Be sure to select your disbursement method by logging onto www.mycodcard.com

  • You will only be paid for classes you are actively attending. Remaining in all of your classes is critical to avoid repayment of funds received. If you receive payment for a class and drop, you may be required to repay a portion or the entire grant you received. Please see our drops, withdrawals and repayment of funds policy.

  • All disbursement dates are contingent upon funding and subject to change. Grant disbursements are based on your enrollment status and units will be checked approximately 2 weeks before each disbursement date.

  • Late start classes must start at least two weeks prior to disbursement date in order to be included in that disbursement.

  • For additional information please visit the COD Financial Aid website

  • This schedule is subject to Change at any time without warning.

  • If you are not a California resident or are not eligible for the California College Promise Grant you will need to set up a payment plan with the Bursar’s office to avoid drop for non-payment until your Pell Grant disburses.
