WeberEdge

Nonresident Academic Housing Scholarship

Terms and Conditions

  1. You must enroll for 12-18 credits and complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester as an undergraduate student.  Dropping below this minimum or failure to complete your classes may require repayment of tuition funds and the loss of further scholarships monies.
  2. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain the minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 in order to retain the scholarship, (cumulative GPA includes all WSU courses taken via early college, concurrent enrollment, or before enrolling full-time at WSU).  Dropping below the minimum GPA will result in the scholarship being withdrawn.
  3. With the exception of the Presidential Scholarship, which does cover a portion of general student fees, all other tuition waivers do not cover general and/or special students fees.
  4. Tuition waivers do not cover the cost of independent study courses, distance learning/contract courses, credit/non credit or auditing a course.
  5. Tuition waivers cannot be turned into a cash award, nor can one waiver or a combination of any tuition waivers exceed the cost of full tuition for a semester.
  6. You must reapply for scholarships each academic year by the January deadline.  Reapplication is done through the eWeber student portal, which is a requirement for disbursement of funds. Since there are more students applying for scholarships than there are available funds, the earlier you apply the more competitive you will be in receiving a scholar 
  7. Students may request their scholarship be held for military service, religious service, certain medical circumstances, required job training, or other circumstances beyond the student’s control. A deferment form and proper documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid & Scholarship office prior to the absence. Certain conditions apply. Details are available on the Deferment Request form. Not all awards are eligible for deferment. 
  8. Satisfactory Progress is determined each semester after grades are posted and funds will be disbursed the Tuesday prior to classes beginning.
