Keeping Scholarships

All scholarships are considered to be part of a student's financial aid, and may prompt a revision of their financial aid package.

Scholarships are first applied directly to any current charges on a student’s WWU account. After all University charges have been paid, any excess funds will be refunded to the student. Students’ tuition, fees, room, and board are all billed quarterly.

Scholarships are generally divided and disbursed equally across fall, winter, and spring quarters unless otherwise specified by the scholarship organization. Scholarships will only disburse for students who are enrolled full-time (12 credits for undergraduate students, 8 credits for graduate students). Exceptions may be made if we receive permission from the scholarship organization via email or in writing.

If you have any questions about disbursement of your private scholarships, please contact the Scholarship Center.
