Financial Aid Reporting: Academic Engagement Requirement

Federal Financial Aid regulations require the confirmation of attendance in order for students to receive federal aid. In order to meet these regulations, LSU Financial Aid & Scholarships must be able to verify participation in all college courses at two specific points during the term. The census date, which is the last day for students to add courses or change sections and the last day of the course. As an instructor, you're responsible for assigning academic activities that students must complete by both of these dates. This video will review the instructor's responsibilities for helping students fulfill this requirement.
