Financial Aid Disbursements
Your instructors must verify that you are attending your classes before financial aid will be disbursed in a term. For some types of financial aid, such as the Federal Pell Grant, the number of hours that you are verified as attending impacts the amount of the award that is disbursed.
Attendance is reported to the Records Office by your instructors and must be reported no later than 14 days after a term begins. The 14th day of the term is called the Census Date. No financial aid, including loans, is disbursed to student accounts until after the census date.
