Award Proration

How does this affect my financial aid?

Scholarships & Financial Aid awards students assuming they will be enrolled full-time. We then review students’ records each semester to see if they are enrolled less than full-time. If students are enrolled less than full-time, we make adjustments to their financial aid awards. This review and adjustment occurs every semester, before the financial aid disbursement date and then again at census date (12th class day for fall and spring, 4th class day for summer).
