Federal Grant Enrollment Freeze Date

Students are awarded Pell and TEACH grants assuming a full-time status. Pell and TEACH grant are prorated if you drop below full time. The University of Toledo uses a “freeze” date each semester to determine your enrollment status for Pell, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants and TEACH grants.

The courses you are enrolled in on the freeze date will determine your aid eligibility if your completed FAFSA results are on file by that date. Completed FAFSA results means that a Student Aid Index (SAI) has been calculated by the U.S. Department of Education.

If FAFSA results are received after the freeze date, financial aid will be based on your enrollment on the date that the completed FAFSA results are received. Your SAI may change once all required documentation is submitted and processed.

2024-25 Freeze Dates

Term Start Date Freeze Date
Summer 05/27/2024 5/30/2022
Fall 09/09/2024 9/12/2022
Spring 01/27/2025 1/31/2023

Class Changes Made PRIOR to the Freeze Date

Federal grants will pay based on the courses that you are enrolled in on or before the freeze date each semester. If you add or drop courses up to or before the freeze date, the amount of federal grants for which you are eligible may be affected.

Class Changes Made AFTER the Freeze Date

Federal grants will NOT be adjusted if classes are added or dropped after the freeze date (unless the Return of Title IV recalculation policy applies; see below). This includes modular courses or any course that starts later in the semester. It is in your best interest to complete ALL your add/drop changes by the end of the business day on the freeze date.

This policy affects students receiving federal grants. Students receiving Federal loans must maintain at least half-time enrollment throughout the semester.

Students who withdraw or do not complete classes

If you receive Title IV federal aid, you may have to repay portions of your aid if you:

  • Withdraw from all classes
  • Stop attending all classes
  • Do not complete all modules for which you have registered

You could owe an overpayment to a grant program, owe funds to the University and may jeopardize eligibility for future financial aid.

Learn what aid is considered Title IV funding and more about the Return of Title IV Funds policy.

Ohio College Opportunity Grant funds will be prorated based on any changes to tuition charges. Other state grant programs may also require adjustments to the award if you drop a class.
