University of Northwestern Ohio


Scholarship awards are gift awards and may be based on merit or criteria other than financial need as determined from filing the FAFSA.  Similar to grants, scholarships also do not have to be repaid. Numerous scholarships are available to students attending the University of Northwestern Ohio through gifts to the University in the names of generous donors who wish to assist students. Students who receive University of Northwestern Ohio-sponsored scholarships in the College of Business, College of Health Professions, College of Occupational Professions, and College of Applied Technologies must meet and maintain certain requirements and understand their responsibilities.

Some scholarship requirements may stipulate the following:

  • Scholarship awards may be divided over the number of sessions or quarters in the academic program.
  • Scholarship awards are applicable for the original major enrolled.  (A Financial Aid Counselor should be consulted if a change in major occurs.)
  • Scholarship awards must be used for traditional tuition charges only (excluding lab fees, books, and housing). Students are responsible for any difference in tuition rates.
  • Scholarship awards may require students to start by January following high school graduation. (For students who elect to join the armed services after high school graduation, scholarship awards require students to start within one year of being honorably discharged.)
  • To remain eligible for scholarships, students must maintain an accumulative GPA of 2.5 (or higher depending on the stipulations of the scholarship) AND students may not withdraw for more than one session or quarter over the course of their program.  Exceptions: military duty/medical reasons, with verification. One session or quarter of probation will be granted if students fall below the required accumulative GPA.

Student Responsibilities:

  • Students will return at the University’s current tuition rate if they withdraw, excluding a withdrawal for an approved exception.
  • Student violation of any student code of conduct rule that leads to suspension from the University will result in immediate loss of scholarship awards.
