Institutional grants and scholarships will not be reduced due to the receipt of outside scholarships unless one of the following occurs:
- If student receives federal grants or loans, these funds, in combination with any other grants/scholarships, cannot exceed student's financial need.
- All outside scholarships, in combination with all aid received, cannot exceed student's cost of attendance.
Outside scholarships are not from federal, state or institutional (university) sources, such as a Federal Pell Grant or SEOG. Examples of outside scholarships are: Coca Cola, Gates Millennium, Rotary scholarships, etc.
