  • You may be required to provide additional documents, acknowledgements, or information to receive this award.
  • This institutional award solely reduces the amount owed to the college (including tuition, housing, meals, and fees) for each of eight semesters— after all federal and state grants and other scholarships have been applied.
    • It is applicable only to reduce campus-related costs, is nonrefundable, and cannot be used to generate a payment to the student or generate a credit to be used for future semesters.
    • It also cannot be used to fund off-campus housing, study abroad expenses, or Dual Degree program courses taken at other institutions.
    • You may only use this award for charges associated with the fall and spring semesters of the academic year, and it may be adjusted based on federal guidelines, institutional methodology, or eligibility requirements.
