What is the Financial Aid Freeze Date and why is it important?
The amount of your financial aid award for Fall 2015, if we have your completed FAFSA results on file as of this date, is determined by your enrollment as of September 7, 2015, the financial aid freeze date for Fall semester. Even if the class starts later in the semester, if you plan to use financial aid to cover the cost of the class, it must be on your schedule as of the semester freeze date.
If a student adds or drops classes before the freeze date, the amount of financial aid the student is eligible for may be affected. If classes are added or dropped after the freeze date, the financial aid will not change if the student has attended the class and Federal Stafford loans have disbursed, but this may affect other financial aid eligibility criteria.
Please contact Oserve for more information on the freeze date and how it will impact your financial aid. You can also read about the freeze date policy by going to https://www.owens.edu/financial_aid/enrollment.html
