Tuition waiver scholarships for the subsequent fall semester may be awarded to students who apply after the February 15 priority date if there is additional funding available. However, those who comply with the priority date of February 15 will be given first priority.
Scholarships and waivers may be available for students who apply to enter during the spring semester if funds remain after the fall awards are assigned. First priority is given to students who enter in the fall semester.
