Eligibility Requirements

Student Financial Aid Services is responsible for ensuring that student-recipients selected for scholarships meet the criteria of the specific award programs and that institutional policies for awarding UI scholarships are followed.

Enrollment Requirements for University of Idaho Scholarship Recipients

Because University of Idaho Scholarships are awarded to students to assist them with the educational costs associated with completing UI coursework for a UI degree, scholarship recipients are required to meet certain enrollment requirements before scholarship awards are disbursed.  UI scholarships are awarded with the expectation that the recipients will enroll as fulltime students in a recognized UI degree program.

Students who qualify for these specific programs - the National Merit, Go Idaho, and Discover Idaho - must meet the following criteria regardless of their home campus site:

  • Major in a recognized UI degree program
  • Enroll in a minimum of 12 UI credits.

UI Scholarship-Recipients whose home campus site is other than Moscow

Students who receive any other individual UI scholarships awarded on a one-time, non-renewable basis must meet the following criteria:

  • Enroll fulltime for the term. Fulltime students are defined as those that enroll for at least 12 credits as undergraduates, 9 credits as graduate students, and 10 credits as law students
  • Enroll in a minimum of 6 credits of UI classes for the term 
  • Enroll in a degree program offered through the university’s off-campus center

UI Scholarship-Recipients on consortium who attend another school

Consortium agreements were created to allow UI degree-seeking students with special circumstances and a need to enroll at another institution for one or two semesters to receive UI financial aid and scholarships.  Scholarship-recipients who submit a consortium will be asked to explain their reasons for attending another school and provide information about their future enrollment plans.  Once this information is received, Student Financial Aid will determine the student’s eligibility for a scholarship disbursement on a case by case basis.
