*This date is the earliest projected date that the disbursement process begins if files are complete and awards are posted.

Please check this page regularly for updates, and note the following for more information.

  • Academic Calendar
  • Census Date:the first date after add/drop for Full and A Sessions. 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 to have any 12W or B 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 Full and/or A Session plans to also enroll in a B Session course, he/she must do so by the end of add/drop for Full/A Session.
    • If students' initial enrollment for the term is during 12W or B Session add/drop period, then their awards will be calculated based on enrollment at the end of that session's add/drop period.
