Scholarship Policy For Spring Semester Applicants
Availability of need-based assistance is limited for students who enroll in the spring semester. Those who qualify may receive the Pell Grant and Direct Loan. Application should be made well in advance of the beginning of classes.
There are some scholarships available to students who enroll in the spring semester. Academic scholarships may be granted to spring applicants on a waiting-list basis. No actual scholarship funds will be awarded for the spring semester. While notice of the award is made during the spring, funding does not go into effect until the following fall semester. In order to receive this assistance in the fall, the student must achieve the required academic standing during the spring. The policy regarding awarding scholarships to spring applicants is subject to change without notice if funding becomes unavailable.
