Summer Enrollment Level Census Date
The “Enrollment Level Census Date” is for the purpose of determining your enrollment level for the semester. The Enrollment Level Census Date for Summer is June 13, 2023. On this “census date” we will record your enrollment level (number of credits enrolled that apply to your degree program) as of that date, which will determine your eligibility for financial aid awards for the semester. Courses that are added after this “census date” will not be included into your financial aid enrollment level for the semester.
