Frequently Asked Questions 

BankMobile is PPCC's Refund Method

BankMobileVibe is Not a Scam

Financial aid, i.e. grants, scholarships, and loans, pays towards the balance due to PPCC first on the Monday after the main census/drop date. If that Monday is a holiday, it will pay on Tuesday.You will receive a financial aid refund if there is any money left over after all charges have been covered. You will receive a mailer from BankMobile explaining how to choose your refund preference OR you can visit BankMobileVibe.com.

Refunds will be generated by the Student Accounts office each Monday and the funds will be available to the student the following Friday – Monday, depending on their refund preference. Students are strongly encouraged to set up a direct deposit account in order to receive the refund most quickly. Students also have the option to choose a Debit Card or have a paper check mailed to them. A paper check could take up to 4 weeks to receive through the mail.

Now is the time to think about your financial aid for the upcoming summer semester. 

 

In past years, students were required to complete a Summer Intent Form to be awarded financial aid for the summer semester.  This year, you simply need to enroll in your summer classes and financial aid will do the rest.

To be eligible for summer financial aid you must:

  • Complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA
  • Complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA
  • Login to Navigate to schedule an appointment for assistance in completing your 2020-2021 application (if needed)
  • Be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours
  • If you are enrolled in less than 6 credit hours, your eligibility for aid may be limited
  • Register for summer courses beginning March 16, 2020.

Starting at PPCC saves you $10,000, or eight tropical vacations.
