How might this change affect a student’s financial aid?

Financial aid is based on student enrollment at midnight on the 22nd day of the semester. Students need to register for all courses by this date, even those with a late start. If a student withdraws from a course on day 23 or later, the W grade will appear on the transcript and it will count as attempted hours in determining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
If a student registers for a class that begins later in the semester and drops it before it begins, financial aid will be adjusted to reflect actual enrollment. Federal requirements do not allow aid for courses a student never begins. Students who are considering dropping or withdrawing from a part of term course (one that is less than the full 15 week semester), should consult their financial aid counselor to learn how aid eligibility will be affected.
