* Financial Aid Eligibility and Academic Schedule Changes

Financial Aid Eligibility and Academic Schedule Changes: Importance of Finalizing Schedule Changes by Tuesday, August 28

It is important to understand the connection between your academic activity and financial aid eligibility. Please see a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid if you have questions.

TUESDAY,  AUGUST 28 - This is the last day to add a class for the fall semester.  It is also the last day to drop a class without a ‘W’ grade appearing on your transcript.  If you are CERTAIN that you intend to drop a course, while still remaining in at least 12 new credits (full-time), it is important to complete the process on or before Tuesday, August 28.

The number of credit hours for which you are enrolled as of Wednesday, Aug. 29 will be your official "attempted" credits used in May 2013 in the calculation for determining if you meet the federal, state and University standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for aid renewal. If you drop a course after Tuesday, August 28 a “W” will appear on your transcript, and will count as “attempted” but not “earned.”

View the full University of Evansville policy for Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid Renewal.

DROPPING BELOW FULL-TIME ENROLLMENT BEFORE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 – Full-time students who are considering dropping below full-time enrollment (12 credits) or part-time students who reduce their course load before Thursday, September 20 could have their charges and financial aid adjusted dramatically. Before September 20, please consult with a financial aid counselor prior to dropping courses.  After September 20, charges and aid remain fixed, even if enrollment is less than full-time.

REPEATED COURSES – If your current schedule includes repeated courses which you have already passed, it is especially important to speak with a financial aid counselor in advance of changing your schedule.  New federal regulations may govern your aid eligibility in a more restrictive way.

Dylan Terry, who scored a pair of goals in the preseason, notched his first of the regular season at the 14-minute mark, scoring on a breakaway and making a move on Belmont goalie Jordan Leedle.  Hajderovic assisted on the goal as UE took the 1-0 advantage.

Later in the first period, Jesse Sharp had a close opportunity in front of the net, but the rocket off of his foot was corralled by the BU goalie.  Sharp got his revenge with just over seven minutes remaining in the half as he knocked a rebound in goal.  Ryan Stallings lined a shot that was saved by Leedle, but Sharp got the rebound as knocked it home to put UE up 2-0.

Belmont came out charged up after halftime, scoring their first goal of the game as Nico Olsak assisted Raphael Colmanett to put the Bruins on the board. 

Evansville clamped down on its defense after allowing the goal and held on to earn its second victory of the season.  The Bruins tipped the field their way in the latter minutes, but the defense for UE was able to find its way out of trouble each time to hang on for its second victory in as many contests.

The men play one match next weekend as they travel to Georgia State for a 6 p.m. match.
