PELL Grant Census Date: Read carefully if you are a recipient of the Federal Pell Grant. The amount of the Federal Pell Grant that you will receive is directly related to your enrollment status at the time of disbursement (full-time, three quarter-time, half-time, or less than half-time).
Federal Pell Grant regulations require our office to confirm your enrollment at that single point in time during the semester - called the Pell Census. The Pell Census will occur at the end of the 10th day of classes. For Fall 2018, we will be confirming your enrollment at the end of the day on September 17, 2018.
If your enrollment status changes after this time, even increasing your credit load from half-time to full-time, the Pell Grant amount will not be adjusted. However, you may contact our office to see if there is other aid that can be adjusted.
Students who advance in academic standing after completing a term (ex. Reaching 30 credits or greater or 60 credits or greater) may contact our office to request a review and possible incease in Direct Loan funding.
