Information for Financial Aid Students - Spring 2017

For those sessions start later in the semester, financial aid will be credited to RichmondCC student accounts based on the start date of each course after confirmation of class attendance. This includes students with DMA, DRE, EDU 262, and/or NUR 212 classes. Each DMA/DRE class/session is counted separately. Your schedule shows you the start date for each course. And you can view your schedule of classes in WebAdvisor.

Financial aid will not be credited to a student account before the 10% point (census date) of each curriculum course. Every curriculum course has a 10% point (census date). Confirmation of class attendance is performed after this 10% point of each curriculum course. Your financial aid will only be credited for classes that you have already began attendance in.

The award(s) listed on your award letter was/is a projected amount based on full-time attendance (12 or more credit hours per semester). Your actual grant amount will be based on your enrollment status at the end of the 10% point of each session. If you are enrolled for fewer than 12 credit hours or you are currently attending less-than 12 credit hours, please see the section below to determine your grant award for the hours you are enrolled/attending.

If you are enrolled for fewer than 12 total credit hours per semester, your award amount will be prorated as follows:

  • 9 to 11 credit hours = ¾ time or 75% of your award
  • 6 to 8 credit hours = ½ time or 50% of your award
  • Less than 6 credit hours = 25% of your award or less

All charges for tuition/fees and books/supplies must be deducted from your financial aid before you will be mailed a refund check. If your financial aid award for the hours you are currently attending is enough to cover all the charges on your account and there is any aid left after all charges are paid, a refund check will be mailed to you. Please check WebAdvisor to see if all your charges have been paid and if a refund has been mailed.
