April 10, 2014
Annually, the Office of Student Financial Aid Services is required to evaluate all students for compliance with the University SAP policy. As such, evaluations for all students will take place on May 19, 2014. Students who do not meet the parameters outlined in the SAP policy may be subject to cancellation of their 2014-2015 financial aid packages as a result of this evaluation.

Finalizing Spring 2014 Enrollment before the Tenth Day of Class
January 29, 2014
University policy requires that financial aid and scholarships are based on a fixed enrollment date (the tenth day of classes) each semester. The tenth day of class is the last day on which students are able to add/drop credit hours via the Student Administration System. Individual financial aid awards and/or university scholarships for the semester will be based on the number of credit hours for which students are enrolled on that date.

The fixed enrollment date for the Spring 2014 semester is Monday, February 3, 2014. If enrollment is not finalized by this date, students will be notified by the Office of Student Financial Aid Services (OSFAS) that their financial aid may be cancelled. If the spring semester registration is finalized AFTER the tenth day of classes, students may submit an appeal to request reinstatement of their financial aid package (on a funds available basis). Appeals must be received by OSFAS no later than February 14, 2014 to avoid further adjustments to your financial aid award. For more information, contact: Client Services at 860-486-2819 or email
