Purchase of Books and Supplies

You cannot access your funds until after March 29 and most students can expect to receive their funds by April 2 if they chose an electronic disbursement option.

  • Avoid the bookstore lines and purchase your books early. You must purchase books and supplies using your own funds or wait for your refund to arrive.

Confirmation of Academic Progress:

For continuing students, we check prior quarter grades before we disburse winter aid. Check your BC email on or after March 29 for notification regarding your financial aid status and eligibility based on your prior quarter grades.

  • Go to our SAP page for details about Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.
  • If your aid is canceled but you experienced a hardship or a mitigating circumstance, please file an appeal and ask for reinstatement of your aid.
    • File your appeal by Monday, April 2 if you plan to attend spring quarter.
    • Access to our Appeal form
    • We hold you in your classes until we review your appeal.

Pell Repayment Date:

You must finalize your schedule by the Pell Repayment Date, which is April 6, 2018 for spring quarter. Please read our policies regarding adding and dropping classes.
