Tuition Relief Scholarship FAQs
The Tuition Relief Scholarship is powerful and simple: enroll this fall and pay your first semester's tuition, and Ashland picks up the bill for your tuition in Spring 2022.
Any first-time, full-time, residential undergraduate student enrolled at Ashland University in Fall 2021 in a bachelor's degree program is eligible. Recipients must successfully complete a minimum of 12 credit hours in the Fall 2021 semester and be in good academic standing with a GPA of at least 2.0. A completed FAFSA must be on file and there must be no account balance outstanding by the end of the Fall. These students must also live on campus in both the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.
Grades of “incomplete” will not count toward the 12-credit hour minimum and will earn 0 points in a GPA calculation. Courses in which a student may elect a Pass/Fail grade will be considered for the credit hour minimum, but will not be included in a GPA calculation. Credit earned from CCP, AP, CLEP will not be included in the credit hour minimum. Students cannot have been previously enrolled in a degree-seeking program at another college or university (CCP or non-degree courses are fine).
Yes. Students who already receive grants, scholarships or benefits from all sources in an amount that covers tuition are not eligible. Additionally, students whose fall semester account balances after other financial aid has been applied are not paid in full are not eligible.
No. At the conclusion of the fall semester, the Financial Aid Office will review your eligibility and award the scholarship if you qualify.
Any outstanding tuition costs less any grants, scholarships or benefits available to the student.
The scholarship does not cover room, board, books or other related expenses and fees.
It is calculated by subtracting federal or state grants, Ashland University merit scholarships or grants, athletic or other institutional scholarship programs, and grants, scholarships and benefits from outside sources from tuition costs.
With the support of the donor, the Tuition Relief Scholarship is designed to help make the Ashland University experience affordable for first-time, full-time traditional undergraduate students living on campus. We offer many other scholarship opportunities for students who may not qualify for this particular scholarship.
Your fall semester grades will be reviewed and your financial aid offer letter will be updated to reflect the Tuition Relief Scholarship if you qualify.
