Our Best Answer - How and when will I receive my financial aid?

Receiving Your Financial Aid

Once you have completed a financial aid file and eligibility has been determined you will have pending financial aid funds until the third week of classes.  At this time aid will be applied to your institutional charges. Students with sufficient pending financial aid to cover all tuition and fees may use a portion of the remaining Pell Grant funds to purchase necessary books and supplies in the Triton College Bookstore beginning one week prior to the start of the semester.

Any remaining monies after tuition is paid and books are purchased will be issued to students as outlined below:

The refund will be issued in the form of a check mailed to the home address listed at Triton College within 8 to 10 weeks from the start of the semester.

Subsidized and Unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan funds will be applied directly toward your account. Loan proceeds that exceed tuition and fees will be refunded to you in the form of a check.
