How long to recieve money after cashing out my 401K?

I have $8,500 in John Hancock 401K. I'm leaving my job to start school in August. How much and how long will it take to recieve this money? I know it's stupid, but I'm young enough to recoup. My job doesn't allow any type of withdrawals unless you end employment. Thanks in advance.
