Fall 2014 Merit Tuition Scholarships for Non-Residents

UAH recognizes incoming first-time freshmen who have demonstrated superior academic achievement in high school through a variety of merit tuition scholarships. Students who submit an Application for Admission, official transcripts, and standardized test scores are automatically eligible for consideration. No separate scholarship application is required.

High school GPA and ACT/SAT scores are used to identify recipients. Final award eligibility will be determined by high school GPA at the end of the junior year, and by the highest composite ACT/SAT test score submitted through and including the last testing date before the start of the fall semester.

Students must be admitted to UAH to be eligible for these awards. Priority consideration is given to students who are admitted to UAH by June 1. Students admitted after the priority deadline may be eligible for awards as funding is available.

All merit tuition scholarships are four-year awards, renewable each year based on full-time student status and satisfactory academic progress. Scholarship values represent available amounts for the academic year 2014-2015 only and are subject to change without notice. The actual award value is determined by applying award percentages to tuition charges for the academic year of enrollment.

NOTE: While award recipients are only required to take a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester, merit tuition scholarships cover up to 16 credit hours per semester. UAH encourages recipients to take full advantage of the merit award by taking per semester the number of credit hours needed to graduate in four years, 16 or more. This will allow you to complete your degree in four years, resulting in significant cost savings for the completion of your degree.
