After the census date, students receiving a WNTSG/TN PROMISE/TCAT RECONNECT award will normally not be allowed to change status during the term. The census date is defined as the first day of the term or the first day of the student’s enrollment for the term.
If approved for a change in enrollment status, the amount of any financial award, including WNTSG/TNPROMISE/TCAT RECONNECT being received will be adjusted based on the revised scheduled hours for the term. Any amount that the student owes for financial resources already received must be paid prior to the effective date of the change.
If the Student Services Office denies a student’s request to change enrollment status, the student will need to determine if they will continue enrollment or withdraw from the institution. In the event of withdrawal and subsequent non-continuous enrollment, a student may appeal the loss of scholarship so long as they meet one of the requirements for appealing loss of state aid and submit appropriate supporting documentation.

Appropriate school personnel will process the withdrawal.

Should the student return to class after an automatic withdrawal has been processed, the student will be required to complete a new application for enrollment.
