Enrollment Verification

Do you need proof of the scholarship recipient’s enrollment? You can get a printout of your course schedule / bill by visiting any of the campus business offices. We’ll be happy to print it out for you! You can also access this through the My San Jac Student Portal.

Disbursement of Scholarship Funds


Scholarship funds will be placed on the student’s account and can be viewed in SOS. We apply funds according to donor specifications. Funds will first be applied to tuition and fees. After that, remaining funds can be used to buy books at our campus bookstores. 

If the student is allowed to receive remaining scholarship funds, those will be disbursed to their selected refund preference, using BankMobile technology. If funds are not allowed to be released, they will be moved to the next semester, or returned to the donor.
