UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Financial Aid begins disbursing approximately one week before the first day of semester. The 6th day of the semester is called the Financial Aid census date and is a 'snapshot' of your enrollment at the beginning of that day. Your financial aid and Pell eligibility are based upon your enrollment at the census date regardless of your enrollment before or after that snapshot. If you are a financial aid student, it is critical that your financial aid is complete and that you have finalized any course adds/drops before that date.
