Mandatory Course Entry Quiz
You are required to complete the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz for ALL courses.
The disbursement of several Title IV funds (examples include Direct Loans, Pell Grants, SEOG, and Federal Work Study) will be restricted to courses where your course entry is confirmed. These funds cannot be disbursed for enrollment in courses where your course entry is unconfirmed.
You will confirm your course entry by completing the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz. The quiz will be available on Canvas during the designated drop/add period for each course.
During the drop/add period for your courses, you will be sent an email from Canvas listing all your courses for which the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz is available but not completed. The email will contain hyperlinks directly to each incomplete quiz, allowing you to easily complete the quiz from your smart phone, tablet, or computer.
If you are a current financial aid recipient or you think you may need financial aid at some point during the semester, you MUST complete the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz for each registered course.
Failure to complete the quiz for any of your courses could result in a reduction/cancellation of your financial aid.
In addition to completing the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz, students are required to maintain eligibility for Title IV funding by displaying documented academic activity in the course. Examples of valid forms of documented activity include faculty attendance rosters, graded assignments, quizzes, or exams. Students should be aware that they may be required to repay any aid disbursed for a course for which they have no documented academic activity, even if the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz was completed.
NOTE: Quizzes for courses which have a start/end date that is different from those specified in the University Academic Calendar (such as Fast Track and Executive Education classes) will be made available during the courses’ unique drop/add period. Disbursement of financial aid that is contingent on courses which have not yet started will be delayed until you have completed the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz for the course.
