Federal Grant Programs
Award amounts listed on the award notice are based on a full-time credit load of 12 or more credit hours. The amount of award will be reduced proportionally with 9-11 credit hours receiving 3/4 award and 6-8 credit hours receiving 1/2 award. Students taking less than 6 credit hours should check with the Financial Aid Office to find out grant amounts.
Students may not receive a Federal Pell or SEOG Grant for attendance at more that one school for the same period of time. A student attending two schools during the same semester should contact the Student Financial Aid Office immediately.
When the student enrolls, grant funds available to cover charges will be credited to the student’s account. Remaining grant funds will be deposited into the student’s account based on the number of credit hours in which the student is enrolled on Financial AidCensus Day. Aid amounts may be reduced for withdrawing from a course before Financial Aid Census Day. Additionally, financial aid will not be increased for any credit hours added after Financial Aid Census Day.
The Business Office will deduct from the student’s account any money owed for tuition, fees, books, and supplies. A check for the remaining funds (credit balance) will be mailed to the student at the address that is on file in the KCKCC Admissions and Records Office. Funds that are undeliverable by mail will be held in the Business Office up until the last day of the semester. Credit balance checks will be mailed to students beginning the first week of October for fall semester and the first week of March for spring semester.
