Why tuition refund dates matter for FA

  • Remaining in a course past this date means you may be responsible for the charges if the course is not financial aid eligible.
  • Remaining in a course past this date means it will be counted in your FA Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) measures, which can affect future FA eligibility. For more information on the FA SAP policy, please see the FA SAP web page and FA SAP Handbook
  • Withdrawing from a course after this date will result in a lowered completion ratio.
  • If you do not withdraw from the course and receive an 'F' grade, this will both lower your completion ratio and lower your GPA.

Pell Recalculation Dates

There is one PELL Recalulation Date in a semester. Your enrollment on this date determines the PELL award amount you are eligible to receive. Courses added after this date will not be considered for PELL disbursement. Likewise, courses dropped prior to this date will not be considered for PELL disbursement.

  • The 2023 Fall Pell Recalculation Date is September 13
  • The 2024 Spring Pell Recalculation Date is February 14
  • The 2024 Summer Pell Recalculation Date is June 13

Enrollment only in Modules

Modules are shortened terms that do not span the entire length of the payment period (a.k.a MAIN term). Examples of modules are: Accelerated #1, Accelerated #2, Late-Start and Mini terms. If your first enrollment for the payment period occurs after the MAIN PELL recalculation date, then your PELL eligibility will be determined using a cutoff date equal to the final add/drop date of the earliest module in which you enroll. Refer to the "Last day to add a class" under "Mini-Mester Dates" on the term-specific PDF calendars located on the Academic Calendar web page.

2023-2024 Pell Pro-Ration

Pell Grant amounts are based on both degree-eligible credit hours and financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FA Offer Letters in your portal display full-time awards. If you are enrolled in less than 12 credit hours, your PELL amount will be pro-rated as shown in the chart below. Pell amounts will be pro-rated based on hours of enrollment with the exception of high EFCs in which the amount will be $0 (see chart below). Please note that pro-ration will vary for Less-Than-Half-time statuses based on your Cost of Attendance and may not mirror the chart shown below. Your EFC can be found on your Student Aid Report at the Federal Student Aid website. Your Cost of Attendance can be found on your FA Offer Letter (labeled "Budget").

Term Credit Hours Term Enrollment Status Pro-Ration 23-24 EFC too high
1-5 Less-than-half-time 25% EFC =/above 4401 = $0
6-8 Half-time 50% EFC =/above 5901 = $0
9-11 Three-Quarter-time 75% EFC =/above 6401 = $0
12+ Full-time 100% EFC =/above 6657 = $0

Census Dates

Census dates are the dates that financial aid eligibility is confirmed. A snapshot of your course schedule, active degree program and attendance/participation on the census date will determine your eligibility for an award. Exception - See the "Pell Recalculation Date" section directly above for rules on PELL eligibility.

How Census Dates are Determined

  • MAIN term = End of 4th week of the term
  • Accelerated terms = 10 days after 1st day of term (11th day)
  • Winter Mini, May Mini and August Mini = 5th day

Note: Summer term census dates generally follow the 11th day guideline.

SU1 (Accelerated #1) Jun 3 Jun 28 Jun 13
SU MAIN (Full term) Jun 3 Aug 2 Jun 13
Mid-Summer Term Jun 17 Aug 2 Jun 27
SU2 (Accelerated #2) Jul 1 Aug 2 Jul 11

Why census dates matter for FA

  • Adding a course after the census date could mean you are responsible for the cost of the course.
  • After the census date, any degree program changes will NOT be considered for FA eligibility in the current term.
  • Attendance records must reflect that you are actively participating in a course in order to receive financial aid disbursement. If instructor reported attendance records show that you ceased participation in the course before the term census date, you may forfeit financial aid eligibility for that course.
  • Important Note: If you are in at least one MAIN term course, the MAIN term census date will be used to determine your FA eligibility. In other words, aid will not be re-calculated at a later date within the term even if you add a mini-term course.

Why withdrawal dates matter for FA

Although a 'W' will lower your SAP completion ratio, withdrawing before this deadline can prevent a lower GPA. Note, these are not the deadlines for tuition refunds. Please see Tuition Refund Dates for refund deadlines.
