Financial Aid 'Freeze Date' Based on Sept. 9 Add Deadline
Attention Aid Recipients:
The Cypress College Financial Aid Office calculates your disbursement based on the number of units in which you are enrolled on the LAST DAY to ADD CLASSES (The Fall 2012 deadline to add is September 9, 2012).
You MUST BE OFFICIALLY ENROLLED to receive financial aid (not waitlisted, not waiting for add codes or petitioning late-start classes, etc.). There are no exceptions to this rule for financial aid at Cypress College. YOUR FALL DISBURSEMENT WILL BE BASED ON YOUR ENROLLMENT AS OF SEPTEMBER 10, 2012.
Federal Pell Grant disbursements for students enrolled in less than 12 units will be adjusted automatically. Most financial aid programs at Cypress College require you to attend school at least half-time (6 units) to receive aid. If you apply for financial aid or complete your financial aid file after the last day to add classes your disbursement will be based on your enrollment at the time we receive your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), receive your completed forms to complete your file, and after a Financial Aid Technician reviews your file and determines your eligibility.
