Non-Resident Academic Excellence Scholarship
2020-2021 Terms and Conditions
|Value||Your scholarship will support up to 18 hours of tuition per semester (fall and spring) beginning Fall 2020, for a maximum of eight semesters, or until you receive a baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first. It will not cover fees.|
|Renewal Requirements||Your scholarship may be renewed each year, provided you maintain a 3.6 cumulative GPA and complete twenty-four (24) credit hours during the two semesters of the academic year (12 hours each, fall and spring semesters), twenty (20) of which must be graded. We will review your standing for these requirements after the completion of your second, fourth, and sixth semesters.|
|Restrictions||This scholarship is applied to tuition charges and if other scholarships are received,
eligibility may be impacted.
Scholarship will be forfeited if the student gains Utah residency for tuition purposes.
|Housing||In addition to the Academic Excellence Scholarship, we may also be able to offer you
a housing scholarship in the amount of $3,200 ($1,600 per semester) for one year,
provided you have applied (or will apply for) and qualify for need-based federal financial
aid. You can apply by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
at fafsa.gov. Funding is limited; therefore priority will be given to those who complete their
financial aid file with the University of Utah by February 1, 2020.
Should you qualify, our housing scholarship of $3,200 ($1,600 per semester) would be applied toward the cost of an on-campus room only. All students living in the residence halls are also required to have a meal plan. You will be responsible for the cost of that meal plan, RHA Dues, and the difference between the scholarship amount and the cost of your room selection. Residents reserved in an apartment are not required to have a meal plan. First year students are not eligible to live in apartments other than the Marriott Honors Community. Available options can be viewed at housing.utah.edu/apply-reserve/rates-n-housing-account/ (Rates and Dates Sheets). Final rates are not published until the end of the state legislative session and the campus budget process.
Due to the high demand for on-campus housing, we are not able to guarantee space for the academic year (fall and spring semesters). However, you should apply by the Housing Lottery deadline. It is your responsibility to apply for, and reserve a room according to the timeline for academic year applications. The housing application opens on February 10, 2020 and deadlines begin March 10, 2020. For any questions, please email Housing & Residential Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (801) 587-2002.
|Additional Information||Please be aware that to receive this offer, you must enroll as a full-time student each semester. To be considered full-time, it is required that you register for 12 or more credit hours. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your scholarship.|
|Certification||Students who receive a scholarship, fellowship, or other financial aid administered by the University of Utah are required by state law to certify that they are eligible to receive the scholarship as a U.S. citizen or a citizen of another country who is lawfully present in the U.S. If students do not know whether they are in the U.S. lawfully, they should seek the advice of an immigration attorney before accepting this offer.|
|Deferment and Leave of Absence|| Newly accepted freshmen who wish to defer their start date to a later semester and
hold their scholarship may apply for a deferment through the Office of Admissions.
For more information about how to apply for a deferment, visit: admissions.utah.edu/apply/deferment. Scholarship recipients considering a deferment must confirm their intent to enroll
and accept their scholarship by May 1, 2020. Students have up until the first day
of classes (August 24, 2020) to apply for a deferment.
The University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (UOSFA) will also, in extenuating circumstances, allow a student to take a leave of absence from a scholarship once he or she is a continuing student. For questions regarding eligibility for either deferral or leave of absence, please contact the UOSFA.
