Dates, Deadlines and Disbursements

The information contained on this webpage include important dates to remember, financial aid related deadlines and dates of fund disbursement.

Freeze Date (Census Date)

Financial aid disbursements will be based on your enrollment as of the day after the Last Day to Drop without a Grade Notation. 

For the first disbursement we will pay you based on your enrollment at the time we process your check.  At the second disbursement we will adjust your aid based on your enrollment on the financial aid freeze date, which is the day after last date to drop without a grade notation.  Your Satisfactory Academic Progress will be calculated by calculating your successful completion of these classes.  As always - only enroll in courses you think you can successfully complete.  Continued financial aid depends on you completing 67% of the courses you enroll in a semester and maintaining a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.

You must be enrolled in late start courses by the financial aid freeze date (census date).  Late start enrollment after the freeze date (census date) will not be included in your financial aid calculation.

2016-2017 Academic Year

The dates and deadlines listed below are subject to change.

Once initial deadline dates have passed we process check runs every week.  If you see your award posted to Web Advisor the regular processing time is one to two weeks for the funds to reach you. Outstanding financial aid documents may delay the processing and disbursement of your funds.
