    So I started trading deep in the money option to try and capture dividend. I was assigned on the ex div date at 6:52 AM (EST). My question is since I owned the stock on the ex div day will I still get the dividend or will I lose it because it was assigned before market open? Thanks for the help everyone!

    Dividends are already calculated into options prices. If the extrinsic value of your short call is .01 more than the dividend on the ex-dividend date you will be assigned and you will pay the dividend. See "options dividend risk"
