Codes of Conduct

Disbursement of federal and state financial aid funds to students will occur once the Office of Financial Assistance has determined eligibility for funds and authorized the application of payments to student accounts. Financial Aid payments will be applied to charges such as tuition and fees. The difference between the amount owed to the school and the amount of financial aid awarded will be calculated. If funds are due to the student (a stipend), checks will be printed and mailed to the address on file for each student within 10 business days of receipt of funds from the US Department of Education. 

Disbursement of funds occurs each quarter after the add/drop period ends. Students may check their portal at www.myhjc.com
