Important Financial Aid Information

Financial Aid Census Date

The financial aid (FA) census date is the "freeze date" for Pell grant and scholarships. Your aid will be based on the classes you are enrolled in and attending on the FA census date. If you add classes after the FA census date, you will not be able to receive financial aid to pay for them. If you withdraw or drop from a class before the FA census date, you will not be able to receive financial aid to pay for them.

Students who stop attending classes should officially withdrawal from those classes via WebAdvisor. If students stop attending and do not officially withdrawal, their aid may be adjusted at the end of the semester when professors report final grades and attendance.

It is important for all students who are receiving financial aid to check with the Student Financial Aid Office before making changes to their class schedule.
Student aid refunds are available 14 days after disbursement  Please contact the Student Financial Aid Office if you have any questions or concerns.

Required Coursework

Financial aid will only cover courses that count as required courses in your degree program needed to graduate. This means that each course you are registered for in the semester must be listed as a needed course in your program evaluation/degree audit. To access your degree audit, please use the EVALUATE PROGRESS IN PROGRAM link/option under the STUDENTS section of WebAdvisor. You must be logged in to access this feature. If you have questions about whether your courses count in your program evaluation, please see the Academic Advising office in the Student Center.
