Your Financial Aid Disbursement Options

Your Campus. Your Funds. Your Way.

A fast and convenient way to get your Financial Aid.


Multiple choices for Disbursement

Why wait for paper checks? Contra Costa Community College District will be offering students two options to receive their financial aid disbursement starting this summer.* Students can sign up for electronic disbursements to either:

  • Your bank account via ACH direct deposit (3-5 business days)
  • The CollegeCash Card, a Money Network® Enabled MasterCard (same day)
There are multiple ways to receive your financial aid disbursement and you are not obligated to receive your funds on the CollegeCash Card. However, we encourage all students to enroll to receive their funds electronically. If you do not select either direct deposit or sign up for the Card, you will receive your funds via a paper check, which may take up to 7-10 days to receive in the mail.

Meet the CCCCD CollegeCash Card. Features include:

  • Free1 Account with no minimum balance requirement or monthly fees.
  • The Account can be reloaded by the school, friends, family, even your employer*.
  • Convenient ATM access through 55,000 Allpoint Network® ATMs.
  • Can be used everywhere Debit MasterCard® is accepted.
  • Account includes Money Network® Checks that can be cashed for free at any Walmart location.
