Changes in Enrollment

The Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid verifies enrollment status when funds are disbursed (usually just prior to the first day of classes each semester) and again at the end of the add/drop period.

Making changes to your enrollment, such as failing to enroll for the number of hours on which an award was based, dropping hours, or withdrawing from school, frequently requires you to repay your aid.

Contact the Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid before making the following changes to your enrollment:

Withdrawing from a term in which aid was received may result in the required repayment of unearned aid. The amount of aid to be repaid depends upon the withdrawal date. Typically, if at least 60 percent of the term is completed prior to withdrawal, no aid refunds are required.

Students who do not receive any passing grades in a term in which aid was received are considered to have unofficially withdrawn unless attendance is confirmed. If attendance cannot be confirmed, the repayment of unearned aid may be required.

Some aid funds, particularly Pell, are contingent upon enrollment status at the end of the add/drop period, or census enrollment. Although students may be permitted to add classes after this period ends, census-dependent aid may not be increased as a result.

Students may repeat a course that has previously been passed only one time without impacting aid eligibility. Aid is not awarded for any additional attempts to repeat the same course.
