By Raghuram Sukumar Universities Edit

If you have just enrolled at colleges or universities in the U.S., there are so many new terms you will have to know and learn how to use.

Once such term is census date. Usually, it’s the 21st day after classes start. This date varies in some schools, though.

This is the official date when the number of students enrolled for the academic year will be counted. Public schools use figures from this census to calculate funds to be requested from the Federal government or from the State for the coming academic year.
