New students admitted to an online graduate degree program, who possess a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or above, will receive the Graduate Scholarship. Scholarships in the amount of $500-$1,000 will be credited toward the instructional fee each fall and spring semester. The scholarship is renewable for up to six semesters if the following requirements are met:
- maintain a 3.0 graduate GPA
- complete a minimum of six semester hours each fall and spring semester
No scholarship application is required; however, this scholarship is competitive and will be distributed according to GPA until the allocation for each program is met. Students should apply for admission early as funds are limited. The award process begins in April for the following academic year.
Students receiving a graduate assistantship or the College Credit Plus Instructor Scholarship are ineligible for the Graduate Scholarship.
