What happens if I stop attending or withdraw from a class?

The government may recalculate your financial aid due to lack of class attendance or withdrawal. You could have your financial aid removed from your student account. This could result in a balance due to HACC.

You may experience financial holds if you owe a balance to HACC. These holds can prevent you from:

  • registering for classes
  • receiving your grades
  • getting copies of your transcript

  • When will I receive my financial aid refund?

    How can I check my refund status?

    1. Log into your account.
    2. Select "Refund Status &History" in the sub-menu listed under the "Refunds" tab.

    You can sign up for mobile text alerts to notify you when HACC disperses your refund. We will use your selected refund preference to disperse your refund.

    What is the refund process?

  • It takes about 10 business days for HACC to issue refunds to Higher One.
  • You may see your financial aid and refund disbursement transactions on your HACC account. This does not guarantee the refund process is complete.
  • HACC processes financial transactions behind the scenes. We generate the refund file to send to Higher One.
  • Once HACC transmits the file to Higher One, your refunds are available on your Higher One Account. If you chose ACH (direct deposit), you will receive your refund within two to three business days after HACC transmits the file.
