*Federal Pell Grant recipients: DePaul uses a financial aid census date (referred to as the Pell census date) for purposes of determining your term enrollment status for Federal Pell disbursement each term. The Pell census date is the day after the last day to drop classes with no penalty, as published on the academic calendar. Your enrollment status for Pell disbursement will be based on your official enrollment on this date. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at DePaul Central for assistance.
