Award Proration

How does this affect my financial aid?
Scholarships & Financial Aid initially awards all students assuming full-time enrollment. Students’ records are then reviewed each semester to determine if they are enrolled less than full-time. Adjustments are then made to the financial aid awards of students enrolled less than full-time. This review and adjustment occurs each semester, prior to the financial aid disbursement date and then again at census date (the official 12th class day of the semester).
