Importance of Census DateFinancial Aid

The census date is the point at which your enrollment is locked as the official enrollment for the term. The State requires all student accounts be paid in full or on a payment plan by the census date. Students with unpaid accounts will be dropped from all classes. 

Financial Aid uses the census date enrollment to determine your financial aid award. Federal and State financial aid awards will remain estimated (pending) until the day before Census Day. At this time, the Financial Aid Office will activate your awards and it will be moved over to pay institutional charges on your account. Any remaining money should be refunded to you 14 days later.
