Policy for Financial Aid Refunds

Roxbury Community College currently has multiple start dates for courses offered in both fall and spring semesters. Financial aid refunds are released via paper check as RCC does not offer a direct deposit option for students. In order to remain in compliance with federal regulations, RCC must release student refunds within 14 days of receipt of funds from the US Department of Education. Furthermore, if a financial aid refund is not received by the student within 10 business days from original generation of the financial aid refund the Business Office will mail out the checks via USPS postal service with the mailing address we currently have on file.  Any returned check will be voided and funds will be sent back to the US Department of Education.
