To receive financial aid for the first disbursement in Spring 2023-2024, students must ensure that all financial aid documents are processed by January 26, 2024. However, please note that refund dates do not apply to all students.

 

The next scheduled Spring 2024 refund disbursements will take place on February 20, 2024. The published refund date is when the funds will be sent to BankMobile. It may take 24 to 48 hours to receive the funds, depending on your refund selection, once BankMobile receives the funds.

 

The Spring 2023-2024 semester comprises of three sessions: Session 3, Session 4 and Spring 15-week courses. 

 

Session 3 classes will begin on January 8, 2024, and end on March 3, 2024. 

 

Session 4 classes will begin on March 11, 2024, and end on May 1, 2024. 

 

Spring 15-week courses run continuously from January 8, 2024 till May 1, 2024.

 

If a student is receiving financial aid, the amount will be divided between the two sessions of the semester, even if they are only taking classes in one session. If you have any questions regarding your financial aid eligibility, please feel free to contact our office.

 

What is checked prior to Peirce issuing my student refund?

Prior to issuing your student refund, Peirce will check for the following conditions:

- Account Credit: After your financial aid has been applied to your billing statement, if it is determined that you have a credit (meaning money that will come back to you), then a refund will be reviewed and issued if eligible.

- Attendance: Your attendance and participation are directly related to the percentage of earned financial aid awards.

- Submission of transcripts: If you have a high school or college transcript hold, your funds will not be approved by the Department of Education. An official transcript must be submitted to the Registrar's Office for review and acceptance. If you have a GED or have earned an Associate's Degree from another college or university, please forward this information to the Registrar's Office for review.

- Number of credits: If you have dropped a course(s) and/or have withdrawn from a course(s), this may delay, decrease or eliminate your anticipated refund. Your financial aid was determined and processed based on the original number of credits you decided to pursue for the semester. Changes to these classes could change your Federal and/or PA State Awards.

- Laptop purchase: Best Buy Computer Purchase Program: By enrolling in the Best Buy Computer Purchase Program, your federal funding will be disbursed during the even sessions disbursement schedule (second session of the semester).
