Awards are posted on AccessRIO. You will receive a disbursement notification email via RioMail.
The disbursement amount is based upon the number of units that you are currently registered and attending. If you drop units, your disbursement amounts may be affected.
All disbursements are credited to your student account first to cover any tuition you still owe. Any remaining amount is disbursed to the account you have selected as your refund preference .
Rio Hondo provides it’s Financial Aid disbursements electronically via Bank Mobile Disbursements. You will receive your refund selection kit in the mail at your primary address on file with RHC. Students who submit a FAFSA AND show enrollment at RHC will automatically receive a refund selection kit in the mail. The refund selection kit does NOT mean you are eligible for financial aid nor will funds automatically be made available. Follow the instructions in the refund selection kit to set up your refund preference as soon as possible to prevent delays in any aid you may be eligible for.
First funds from your grant or loan are applied to your student account. Then RHC verifies the information. Finally, it is sent electronically to Bank Mobile. It is then processed by Bank Mobile and disbursed according to your delivery preference.
Bank Mobile sends you an email to address you entered when you set up your refund preferences to let you know when the funds are disbursed. You can also check your status online at Bank Mobile or sign up to receive text message alerts.
