Students who are awarded financial aid after the first disbursement will be paid on a rolling basis. See chart below.

You CANNOT receive financial aid at two or more schools for the same time period, funds disbursed to you in error, and/or for any period of time you were not eligible or enrolled. Failure to heed this information may cause you to have to repay large sums of aid, and may cause you to lose your eligibility for future financial aid.

As part of ECC’s effort to assist you with your educational costs, we will disburse loans in three payments during fall and spring semesters, and two payments during summer.
