Federal Financial Aid Attendance Requirement


Federal regulations require that students receiving Title IV aid (Pell, SEOG, Federal Work Study, Direct Loans and PLUS Loans) begin attendance in each course they are registered for. This requirement pertains to both seated and online courses. Each semester, after the add/drop period, instructors will confirm attendance or non-attendance of each registered student at the Enrollment Census Date. This date can be found on the Academic Calendar. Students who have not begun attendance in each course they are registered for will have their federal financial aid revised based on the number of credits the student actually began attendance in. Funds that have already disbursed may require repayment.

Note: Students will still be responsible for tuition and fees for courses they registered for and did not drop, even though the cost cannot be covered by financial aid due to non-attendance.
