Students are not eligible for refund/overpayment due to an athletic scholarship. Athletic scholarships can only be awarded up to the remaining direct costs (i.e., tuition, fees, room and board) due after applying the student’s institutional grants, academic scholarships, and Federal Pell Grant (if applicable). If the student’s total institutional grants, academic scholarships, and Federal Pell Grant awarded exceed direct costs, the athletic scholarship will be reduced. Federal Direct Loans are available to help students pay for indirect costs (i.e., estimated costs associated with attending college that are not billed by the University, such as books, transportation, and personal expenses).
Coaches should provide eligible students with an Athletic Scholarship Award Letter listing the scholarship tier offered. The letter must be signed by the student, coach, and Athletics Director to be valid. One copy of the form should be given to the student and the other sent to the Record’s Office for processing.
All student athletes must follow the University’s Student Code of Conduct. In the event of a criminal incident or conviction of a criminal offense prior to or during enrollment, the Athletics Department reserves the right to rescind the athletic scholarship.
