In all cases, the total amount a student is awarded cannot exceed the cost of a Marshall University education. In some instances, when Title IV (certain Federal Financial Aid programs) and WV Higher Education Grant Programs are awarded, students are limited to receive grants and scholarships up to the student’s demonstrated financial need.

If you are not living on campus, your institutional scholarships may not exceed tuition, fees and an additional $1,000. Should you choose to live off campus and your institutional scholarships exceed this amount, your institutional scholarship awards may be reduced. This does not include other scholarships and financial aid you may receive from federal, state, and external sources unless those funds have specific restrictions.

Student athletes who have been offered an academic scholarship should discuss the award with a financial aid counselor in the Office of Student Financial Assistance to determine whether or not the scholarship can be accepted. Under NCAA rules, student athletes are limited in the amount of institutional gift aid they may receive. Institutional aid includes both athletic scholarships and institutional merit scholarships.
