Scholarship Terms and Conditions

These Terms and Conditions apply to all internal aid opportunities (scholarships, Discounts, and awards) offered by the University whether stated specifically or not; the terms “scholarship,” “award,” and the like are utilized interchangeably throughout the Scholarship Terms and Conditions.

  1. – Scholarships are added at the start of a semester to the student’s account. Any scholarships that are subject to being one-off have completion dates applied to them.
  2. – Scholarships are not refundable to the student and can only be used to offset tuition costs excluding fees. All credit balances that stem from awarded Scholarships will be applied to next semester’s tuition balance.
  3. – DMU Scholarships are intended to supplement the student’s resources, and cannot cover the full cost of tuition to any DMU program. Therefore, scholarships/discount opportunities are not a substitute for adequate financial preparation, including preparation to accept Federal Student Loans to cover tuition costs.
  4. – Scholarship opportunities are awarded for one academic year.  Some Awards may be renewable annually contingent upon the terms and conditions of the Scholarship/Discount being maintained each academic semester.
  5. – Students may be awarded a maximum of one DMU Scholarship and one Discount opportunity (excluding the Early Admissions Scholarship). They can’t be combined with Reduced Tuition Partnerships (MOUs).
  6. – The student must maintain both a semester and cumulative GPA that is at or above the minimum published criteria by which to remain a student in their degree program, and the student must maintain any GPA requirement specifically designated for the scholarship they have been awarded.
  7. – Students must be continually enrolled in a degree program to maintain scholarship(s)/internal aid awards; any break in continual enrollment may result in loss of the award(s). A change in the student’s enrollment status which is connected to an award or award criteria may result in the award being immediately revoked or non-renewable.
  8. – The scholarship/discount is not renewable for courses/terms/semesters failed, courses/terms/semesters not completed, or courses/terms/semesters that may need to be re-taken for any reason.
  9. – The scholarship/discount is forfeited if the student withdraws from the program, interrupts the continual course of study/program, changes programs, or changes status in any way from full-time continual enrollment.
  10. – If the student continues to study beyond the term noted in a scholarship award, a reapplication for this scholarship must be submitted with the understanding that approval for continuation of a scholarship beyond the noted term limit is not guaranteed.
  11. – The student will be notified through the DMU assigned student email account if any changes in scholarship status should occur. The student is responsible for checking this email account regularly in accordance with DMU policy.
  12. – DMU holds the right to deny any aid application that does not abide by the Scholarship Terms and Conditions.
  13. – DMU reserves the right to reduce, in part or in whole, any granted scholarship.
  14. – All Internal Aid Awards are subject to funds availability.
