Outside Scholarships

Scholarship checks sent to the COD Financial Aid Office from outside organizations on behalf of students require a minimum 6-8 week turnaround time to process the check(s) from the date the check is received in the Financial Aid Office.

During the COVID-19 closure, all outside scholarship checks will be mailed to the address College of the Desert has on file. Please be sure to update your address if your address has changed to ensure you receive your scholarship in a timely manner.
