Census Date and Rosters

The Census Date is the date defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) on which an official and final enrollment count is recorded for submission to THECB. The length of the term determines the actual day on which the Census Date falls.

The Census Date is published in the official academic calendar.

The Census Date is the last date to make schedule changes or to change an academic program for a term. The day following the Census Date, enrollment data is collected, documenting the official and final enrollment count for submission to THECB. To be counted for state aid, students must be registered by the Census Date, and the institution must collect tuition and fees from each student in full or have documented payment arrangements on record.

The day after the Census Date, rosters will become available for verification. Notification of the last date of attendance may be submitted up until the date grading opens for the term. Please see the instructions for how to verify and submit your official rosters.
