Loan disbursement dates vary based on several factors:

  1. When the loan request form with all required documentation is turned into the Financial Aid Office
  2. When FRC completes processing of the loan
  3. Loans for first-time borrowers cannot disburse until you have been enrolled for 30 days in your first semester
  4. Loans for a single semester are required to disburse in two parts, the second disbursement occurs after the half-way point of the semester
  5. When you are enrolled in six or more units

Important! The disclosure statement you receive from Direct Loans once we have originated your loan provides two dates that are not accurate as to when you will receive your loan disbursement from FRC.
