Undergraduate scholarships are restricted for use during a student's first undergraduate program.
All scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time (12 Northwest hours per trimester) to receive University scholarships.
Students must be accepted for admission by specified dates before scholarship awards can be offered.
Admission-based scholarships have admission application deadline of May 1 to guarantee scholarship awards. For students who complete their admission application after May 1, scholarships will be awarded contingent upon available funding.
Students participating in a study abroad program where fees are waived will not receive the Bearcat Advantage or the Green and White Advantage that trimester.
Major-specific and private scholarship award amounts funded through the Northwest Foundation may fluctuate with funding availability.
Freshman President's, Boys/Girls State and Phi Theta Kappa scholarships are only available to students beginning in fall trimester.
Transferable credit hours do not include AP, CLEP, military or nongraded credit hours.
Renewal requirements must be met within the academic year sequence (fall, spring and/or summer) in order to maintain continuous award of the scholarship.
Northwest's scholarship programs are subject to change from year to year based on funding levels and University priorities. While Northwest will attempt to honor renewal programs based on the student's year of admission, the University cannot always guarantee this.
