  • View the Academic Calendar
  • Census Date:  Is defined as the lst date of add/drop for the A/Full term.  In order to have courses counted in enrollment status for Financial Aid calculations, a student must be registered in all courses for the term by the census date.  
    • This means that in order to have any B session or 12week session courses counted in a student's financial aid award calculation, they must be included in those registered for during the student's initial enrollment period.  
    • If a student who enrolls for A/Full term plans to also enroll in a B session course, they must do so by the end of add/drop for the A/Full term.  
    • If a student's initial enrollment for the term is during B session or the 12 week session add/drop, then their awards will be calculated baed on enrollment at the end of that session's add/drop.
