Financial Aid Disbursement Changes

Dear Student,

Your success as a student is the number one priority of Klamath Community College. With this in mind, the Financial Aid Office has listened to your feedback and comments and has taken under consideration many ideas to better serve our students in regard to your financial aid disbursements and the institution’s default management efforts. The following changes are:
  1. Students will now be able to charge books through the second Wednesday of the term, a three-day extension from previous terms. With this extended period, it is with high hopes that a greater percentage of our student body is able to purchase the materials necessary to be successful early on into the term.
  2. Beginning Winter Term 2014, disbursements will now occur Tuesdays at 1:30 beginning the third week of the term, with subsequent disbursements occurring weekly on Tuesdays.
These changes have been made to enhance student success by allowing additional time for students to charge their books. In addition, this also will support the institution’s default prevention efforts and allow for a more comprehensive assessment of Early Alerts.

We, as a college, strive to provide the tools and resources necessary to ensure you are able to perform effectively in all of your classes. We expect and support your success!

Spring term charges were allowed until April 9, 2014. The charge period for Spring term has ended.

• DURING THE CHARGE PERIOD CHECK YOUR FINANCIAL AID PAGE ON THE KCC WEBSITE TO SEE IF YOU QUALIFY. 

If the Financial Aid office still needs paperwork from you, you must submit that paperwork before charging items at the Bookstore. Outstanding documents appear in red. If eligible to charge, you are receiving a line of credit from the college to make purchases at the Bookstore. The amount charged will be deducted from your Financial Aid disbursement. If your financial aid is revoked for any reason, you will be responsible for paying back any charges made at the Bookstore. Not all students are eligible for this program.

• YOUR STUDENT ID CARD IS REQUIRED FOR BOOKSTORE CHARGES.

Your student ID and signature are needed at the cash register. You may not authorize anyone else to charge to your account or charge over the telephone. Distance education students may order online during the charge period.

• THE AMOUNT YOU MAY CHARGE DEPENDS ON THE NUMBER OF CREDITS YOU ARE TAKING FOR SPRING TERM.

Full-time students (12 + credits) : $440

¾ time students (9 - 11 credits) : $330

½ time students (6 - 8 credits) : $220

Part time students (1 - 5 credits) : Not eligible to charge items against Financial Aid
Non-credit or community education students are not eligible to charge to their student accounts.

• BRING YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE WITH YOU TO THE BOOKSTORE.

Textbooks are self-serve and arranged alphabetically by academic department. You might consider going to class first before purchasing textbooks. It is your responsibility to make sure you select the correct items. Check your class syllabus to verify the author and title and if the textbook is required or optional. Many classes require two or more textbooks. Please ask for assistance if you need help.

• YOU MAY CHARGE MORE THAN JUST TEXTBOOKS.

In addition to textbooks, you may charge school supplies, art supplies, backpacks, calculators, USB drives and many other academic items in stock at the Bookstore. Food, beverages and logo items are not eligible to be charged to your account.

• ALL RETURNS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY YOUR ORIGINAL CASH REGISTER RECEIPT.

Should you drop a class and need to return textbooks purchased at the KCC Bookstore, any refunds will be credited to your account. No cash refunds for financial aid transactions.

• THE SPRING TERM CHARGE PERIOD ENDS AT 4:30 PM on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9.

After the financial aid charge period, the Bookstore will continue to accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover card and personal checks (with KCC student ID) for purchases.


**Please note: ADVANCED DIPLOMA STUDENTS (5th year high school students) are not eligible to charge through the financial aid program. Students participating in the advanced diploma program will be provided with required textbooks only - no school supplies. Books must be returned to the sponsoring high school and may not be sold back during textbook buyback.**
