Fall 2020 Census Date
UNLV Financial Aid will finalize student enrollment status for the fall semester on Friday, August 28, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. (PST) in order to determine student financial aid packages. Any changes made to a student’s enrollment status after this deadline, such as dropping or adding a class, may have unanticipated impacts on a student’s financial aid package that will not be automatically updated to a student’s account. Your financial aid for the semester will be based on your credit hours of enrollment on the census date.
If you drop/withdraw from all your classes, an entirely different set of program rules apply outside of the census date program rules.
If you have already received a financial aid refund for the semester and your credit hours of enrollment change after the financial aid refund is sent out, you may owe money back to UNLV after your financial aid eligibility is recalculated.
If, prior to the census date, you drop below half time (less than 6 credits for undergraduate and less than 5 credits for graduate) and do not enroll in additional credits to increase your enrollment to at least half time, by the census date, you will not be eligible for federal student loans. In this scenario, even if you have already received a financial aid refund, at less than half time enrollment your loans will be cancelled and you will have to repay an amount equivalent to the student loan disbursement(s) already credited to your student account.
Please consult with the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office before making any changes to your enrollment status after this deadline.
