Mandatory Course Entry Quiz

Mandatory Course Entry Quiz

Students are REQUIRED to complete a Mandatory Course Entry Quiz for ALL registered courses every semester at FAU. Quizzes are available on Canvas during the start of the term for each course.

Disbursement of Title IV funds (i.e., Direct Loans, Pell Grants, SEOG, and Federal Work Study) will be delayed and restricted for courses where your course entry is unconfirmed. Failure to complete the quiz for any of your courses may result in the reduction/cancellation of your financial aid.

NOTE: In addition to completing the Mandatory Course Entry Quiz, ֱ must maintain eligibility for Title IV funding by displaying documented academic activity (e.g., faculty attendance rosters, graded assignments, quizzes, or exams) in the course. Students 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.
