Financial Aid Census Dates

A student may only receive federal or state-funded financial aid for those courses for which 
he/she is enrolled on the Financial Aid Census Date (see table below). Credits added after the published census date for a semester cannot be considered for funding, even if the course starts later in the semester, with the exception of those students who are admitted to the 
University for the first time and will begin enrollment in the second half of the published 
semester (see census date below).

In addition, a student must be enrolled at least half time in any semester for which financial 
aid funds are awarded. Undergraduate half time is six credits. Graduate half time is three 
credits. If you are not enrolled at least half time at the applicable census date review, all 
financial aid will be canceled for that semester.

Exemption—If an undergraduate student is eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant, he/she 
may qualify for the grant even if enrolled for less than six credits. The financial aid office will 
make this determination when verifying enrollment at the end of the census date each term. 
This student must still meet census date enrollment deadlines.

NOTES: These census dates are specific to the Office of Financial Aid and are not to be 
confused with census dates of other offices. The census dates listed are for the end of the 
business day on that date.
