Your initial award package will be determined assuming full-time enrollment status (12 hours or more each semester for an undergraduate; 9-11 hours each semester for a graduate). This is reflected in the original award notification, which outlines the types and amounts of aid to be received for the period of enrollment. However, your actual financial aid award package is dependent on the number of hours for which you are registered.
A student planning to enroll for less than full time in either semester is asked to notify our office. The student's budget and financial aid will be adjusted accordingly.
Enrollment will be checked each semester prior to disbursement of financial aid. Certain types of aid will not be disbursed if enrolled hours do not coincide with the hours for which the aid was awarded. Final adjustments to student budgets and aid will be made at the end of the drop/add period. If you are enrolled less than full-time at the conclusion of the drop/add period, and your financial aid has already been disbursed, you may be required to repay a portion of disbursed aid.
Indiana program guidelines require that you maintain full-time enrollment during the first four weeks of each semester. less than this will result in cancellation of your award.
