Non-Resident Tuition Scholarship for Students with $4,000 or More University-Based Scholarship(s)

This program is available to all non-resident (for fee purposes) undergraduate students, effective with the 1989-90 academic year. Non-resident tuition scholarships will be awarded by the Academic Scholarship and Financial Aid Office in any semester in which the student qualifies when the total of University-based and controlled scholarships reaches $4,000 or more. The University will not disburse cash from this award, as the award will only be applied directly to the student's tuition account based on a percentage of the difference between the in-state and out-of-state tuition (i.e., a check will NOT be issued from this account).

To qualify for this scholarship, the non-resident student must:

  • Be a full-time (24 credit hours or more per academic year) undergraduate student.
  • Have been awarded and accepted university based and controlled scholarship(s) in at least the total amount of $4,000.
Effective for new students starting Summer 2018, Fall 2018, or Spring 2019
