Financial Aid

Financial Aid Freeze Date


In accordance with federal and state regulations, Monroe Community College establishes a “freeze date” each semester after the end of the add/drop period to determine a student’s enrollment status for disbursing Federal Pell grants and state financial aid. Financial aid will only pay for courses that are required for your major and are added by the freeze date. Hours will be frozen at the end of the add/drop period. Students must be registered for all parts of term before the freeze date to receive Federal Pell and/or state aid for that class. Federal and state aid will not be available for classes added after hours have been frozen.
Financial aid award amounts associated with late starting classes will not be disbursed until attendance is confirmed in those classes. Students should plan accordingly with regard to financial aid refunds when enrolled in classes that start at some point after the start of the term. Students who are retroactively awarded financial aid (after the freeze date) will have hours frozen at the time the award is made and payment will be based on current enrollment at that time.
