2020-2021 Terms and Conditions
|Value||A sum of $8,000 will be applied toward the cost of tuition ($4,000 per semester, fall and spring) beginning Fall 2020 for up to eight semesters, or until you receive a baccalaureate degree—whichever comes first.|
|Renewal Requirements||Your scholarship may be renewed for the second year, provided you maintain a 3.0 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 semester.|
|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.|
Scholarship will be forfeited if the student gains Utah residency for tuition purposes.
This scholarship is applied to tuition charges and if other scholarships are received, eligibility may be impacted.
|Residency||Students may qualify for residency reclassification while receiving this scholarship. Visit admissions.utah.edu/apply/residency for more information. However, the scholarship will be forfeited if the student gains Utah residency for tuition purposes.|
|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.
