The Financial Aid Office uses a census date each semester to determine the amount of Pell Grant and Cal Grant a student will receive for the semester. All enrollment will be locked on the financial aid census date at 11:59pm. Any enrollment adjustments (adds/drops) made after the financial aid census date will not be considered. Students may owe if they drop before census date and a charge will be posted on their student account. Appeals may be accepted for late adds if there was an extenuating circumstance for adding late.
