  • Courses eligible for the Scholarship benefits are those credit-bearing courses for which, on the first day of class, the student is in compliance with all applicable Scholarship Eligibility Requirements. The tuition reduction will be applied towards the current tuition costs for the eligible course.
  • The maximum award amount is $3,000 provided the student meets and maintains Scholarship eligibility throughout their degree program. The maximum amount is based on a student entering a 36-48 credit degree program with zero transfer credits. Award amounts may vary based on number of transfer credits, program, program specific tuition rate, number of courses required to complete the program, scholarship award level and the maximum time frame of the scholarship.
  • Scholarship eligibility requirements include being a new MBA degree seeking student at a campus listed above, in a program of study requiring a minimum of 36 credits who posts attendance and is invoiced for his or her first credit-bearing course with a course start date between June 1, 2015 - August 31, 2017 (Qualifying Attendance); or
    • Students who have previously attended but have been out of attendance for greater than 365 days.
    • Students who attended a course within 365 days if he or she was enrolled in a program type other than a degree program.
  • To maintain eligibility for these scholarship benefits:
    • A student seeking a MBA degree at a campus listed above must meet the initial progress requirement by earning 12 University credits within a 30 week period beginning on the first day of the first credit-bearing course in order to begin receiving scholarship benefits (“Initial Progress”).

To maintain eligibility a student must meet the Continued Progress Period requirements by earning a total of 24 University credits within a 60-week period beginning with the first day of the first credit-bearing course to be eligible to continue receiving the benefit beyond the first 24 credits and 52 weeks (“Continued Progress”).
