Critical Financial Aid Dates

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. Credits added after the published census date for a semester cannot be considered for funding, even if the course starts later in the semester.

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 must 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 after the census date each term. The student must still meet census date enrollment deadlines.

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