Pell Grant Refund Process

Students who are registered and attending class will be disbursed the remaining balance of their Pell Grant award within fourteen days of the credit appearing on the student’s ledger account. Students are encouraged to sign up for eRefund in TouchNet. Students that do not select to participate in eRefunds will be required to pick up refund checks in the business office on the Jasper Campus. Disbursements will continue to be made every other week for students who establish Pell Grant eligibility after the beginning of the semester.

Student’s enrollment level for financial aid purposes is the same as their enrollment level with the admissions office. The enrollment level is based on the number of credits they are enrolled in each term. Students are paid based on their enrollment level as of the Pell Recalculation Date. Any adjustments to the student's schedule after that date will not change the Pell Award, with the exception of full withdrawals.

Enrollment Status Number of Credit Hours Pell Eligibility
Full-time 12 credit hours or more 100%
Three-quarter time 9-11 credits 75%
Half-time 6-8 hours 50%
Part-time 5 credit hours or less 25%

Bevill State encourages Direct Deposit (eRefunds) for all students to receive their Financial Aid and Tuition refunds. eRefunds eliminate the chance of a check getting lost, misdirected, delayed during delivery, or misplaced once it is received. Refunds will be available must quicker as they are not mailed and deposit directly into the student’s bank account eliminating the need to physically visit a bank to make a deposit. There are no fees from Bevill State for using eRefunds. Students that do not select to participate in eRefunds will be required to pick up refund checks in the business office on the Jasper Campus.
