Note: If you have completed the above items, your financial aid should be ready for disbursement on the Tuesday after the first week of classes. Successful disbursement means that your financial aid is credited to your student account. Any money that you owe to MCTC (such as unpaid tuition, fees, and books ) is deducted from your gross disbursement and a difference amount will be available to you either using BankMobile Disbursements or via a paper check mailed to your home address. New student loan borrowers or students on financial aid warning or probation will receive student loan disbursement after mid-term grades have been evaluated. The disbursement delay on student loans will not affect the payment of grants and scholarships. Grant and scholarship funds will be applied on the first Monday after the first week of class.
