Scholarship Details (effective January 2014)
All WVU Tech academic scholarships are tuition, programmatic fee, housing and meal plan specific. Scholarship funds will not be applied towards books, or other fees. Full-time, degree seeking students can only receive one institutional academic scholarship.
Transfer students eligibility will be reviewed with counting in-progress grades towards the total completed.
All students must submit final transcripts with grades by July1st. Student’s eligibility will be re-checked with information on the final transcript and scholarship offers may be rescinded if requirements are no longer met.
All recipients need to register during priority registration for all continuing terms (prior to December 15 for spring and prior to May 15 for fall).
Non-degree, readmit, and second degree seeking students are not eligible for scholarships. Students in Career Technical Education and Regent’s bachelor programs and students in certificate programs do not qualify for the awards.
Students, who lose their scholarship during their career at WVU Tech, have the ability to earn the award back by meeting the renewal standards the next academic year. Each year a student is enrolled at WVU Tech takes away a year of eligibility for the scholarship.
Subject to change: Because of the nature of institutional guidelines affecting financial aid programs, the information outlined in this publication is subject to change.
International students who are offered and accept either of these scholarships are required to submit proof of financial support as well, showing that they have adequate funding for their studies at WVU Tech. The I-20 form, which is required to obtain a student visa, will be issued and sent only after Proof of Financial Support is received.
