**Students who receive a financial aid award after the "award by" date for their registered session will be paid on a rolling basis. For example: if you are enrolled in classes for the full 16-week term and awarded after February 16, 2021, your disbursement will occur on subsequent dates. If this situation pertains to you, please contact the financial aid office to confirm the subsequent disbursement date.

Financial Aid Add/Drop Census Dates

The Financial Aid Office at Central Carolina Community College will adjust awards each semester, as required, based on the student's enrollment status as of the student's "Financial Aid Freeze Date" for his/her first session of that semester. This is the date we take a "snapshot" of students' enrollment status to establish the "official enrollment status" for reporting purposes and financial aid eligibility. At this point, if actual attendance is less than full-time (ex: half-time), awards will be adjusted accordingly.

For example, if the student is registered full-time (12 credits) at the beginning of the term and dropped 3 credits before the financial aid "Freeze" date, aid is adjusted to reflect 9 credit hours (12 credits minus 3 credits dropped). Credits added after the "Freeze" date cannot be used to increase financial aid award eligibility.

Financial Aid Census Dates:
