If you drop or add a course, your enrollment will increase and decrease, however, once the census date passes, your enrollment is “frozen”, meaning if you need to add a course, you will not receive any additional financial aid for that course. Therefore, you should enroll in all courses by the census date, unless paying out of pocket.
