2018-2019 Financial Aid Awards: It is anticipated that the first of the financial aid awards to new incoming students will be sent March 1, 2018.
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. In the past, this census was always done the end of the fourth week of classes each semester. Beginning Fall 2017, the Pell Census will occur at the end of the 10th day of classes. For Spring 2018, we will be confirming your enrollment at 12:01 am on Monday, February 5.
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. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
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.
