How often does financial aid enrollment status get determined?

The Financial Aid Office identifies courses added every 1-2 weeks up until Census

Census Dates for 2018-2019

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.
