Late starting classes

Students enrolled in late start classes can expect to receive their refund approximately two weeks after your latest starting classes’ drop date. In the event that you need to request a reissuance of a financial aid refund check, please read the important information below:

  • Paper checks are sent via USPS mail and can take up to ten (10) business days for delivery.
  • The Business Office will reissue a check no sooner than ten (10) business days after the check date unless the College has received the check back in return mail.
  • You may be charged a $25 processing fee for the reissuance of a check prior to the ten (10) day wait period.
  • When a check is returned to the Business Office, Jackson College will make an attempt to contact you. In the event that there is a forwarding address, the College will send the check in the mail to the forwarding address.
  • Please be sure that Jackson College has your current address. Details on updating your directory information can be found on the Student Services webpage.
  • Once a check has been reissued, the original check will be voided. If you cash or deposit the original check, you will be liable for all costs incurred by your financial institution.
  • Please allow up to one week for processing a reissuance of a financial aid refund check.
