Now that school has started and census has passed for the 16-week session, the Financial Aid Office has begun the process of authorizing financial aid to be applied toward tuition and fees and bookstore charges, if you used financial aid to purchase your books and supplies.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Students who are enrolled in a combination of sessions (16-week, eight- week 2, five-week 3, etc.) will experience a delay in their refunds being processed. For example, there is a separate census date for classes that occur in the eight-week 2 session. In this example, we are unable to process refunds for those students until after the eight-week 2 census date which is October 28, 2009. Check your class schedule to see when your classes begin and refer to the Academic Calendar available at www.tncc.edu.

Ensuring that our operations are lean, modern, technology savvy and properly focused is essential to meeting that need.”
