PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING POLICY REGARDING FINANCIAL AID AND ENROLLMENT HOURS:
All students' enrollment hours will fluctuate during the week of drop/add (the first week of classes). At the end of drop/add week, enrollment level will be determined based on any courses added to or dropped from the original registration.
FINANCIAL AID AND FEE ASSESSMENT WILL BE RECALCULATED BASED ON THE FINAL ENROLLMENT LEVEL AND WILL BE ADJUSTED ACCORDINGLY.
In order to continue to serve the needs of students, The Office of Business Affairs will continue to deliver excess aid funds (refunds) beginning the second day of classes. The amount of excess aid will be based on your ORIGINAL enrollment level.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IF YOU DROP COURSES DURING DROP/ADD WEEK (AND THIS CAUSES A CHANGE IN YOUR ENROLLMENT STATUS) BOTH YOUR FINANCIAL AID AND YOUR FEES WILL CHANGE AND YOU MAY OWE A PORTION OF YOUR EXCESS AID BACK.
Students must be enrolled in at least 6 hours to remain eligible for financial aid (with the exception of Pell Grants in certain instances).
Students who fail to begin attendance in any class for which they register (and do NOT officially drop) will be reported to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office as a "no show" and financial aid recipients will have their aid adjusted accordingly.
STUDENTS ARE LIABLE TO REPAY FINANCIAL AID FOR ANY CLASS(ES) THEY DO NOT ATTEND AND DO NOT OFFICIALLY DROP.
TSAC grants and Pell grants are adjusted to less than full time award amounts at the time of disbursement. Students who drop to less than 12 hours during the first week of classes will have their fees and grants adjusted accordingly. Students who pick up an excess aid check prior to dropping enrollment will be required to repay any funds for which they are not entitled.
Please feel free to call The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships if you have any questions (731) 881-7040.
