Neumont Grants and Scholarships
In the operating budget approved by its Board of Directors, Neumont University has identified over two million dollars in grants and scholarships to reduce the cost of attendance for full-time incoming freshman students entering in the Fall of 2015. This translates into an average tuition scholarship rate of 17%, though individual tuition scholarship rates vary by student, depending on academic achievement, need, prior degree(s) earned, and residency at the time of application.
Applying for Scholarships
To apply for Neumont grants and scholarships, incoming students must complete the Neumont University Application for Admission and provide any additional information noted in the description of each grant or scholarship. Additional materials that are required must be received in their entirety by the Scholarship Committee before the published deadline(s). For grant and scholarship application deadlines, contact the Office of Financial Aid or visit www.neumont.edu/scholarships.
There are five types of Neumont grants and scholarships:
- Merit-based scholarships are available to students who have demonstrated superior academic performance in high school or college, as determined by the Neumont Scholarship Committee.
- Need-based grants are available to students with demonstrated financial need, as determined by the student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) derived from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Utah resident grants are available to students who meet specific Utah residency requirements.
- International scholarships are available to international students who do not qualify for other Neumont grants or scholarships.
- Transfer scholarships are available to students who have earned an associate's or bachelor's degree from an accredited institution prior to attending Neumont.
- Matching scholarships are available to incoming freshman students who have been awarded a scholarship by another organization, such as a philanthropic organization or foundation.
All Neumont grants and scholarships are governed by the following rules:
- Grants and scholarships are only available to students attending at least half-time (six or more credits) and making normal progress. Normal progress is defined as 12 continuous quarters from the first date of attendance through graduation. Any student who drops below full-time status may forfeit his or her grant or scholarship. Exceptions may be considered for students with unexpected family or health events, or students withdrawing or deferring enrollment for full-time humanitarian, community, military, or religious service.
- Any changes to the Enrollment Agreement between the student and Neumont University may result in the loss of a grant or scholarship award.
- Grant and scholarship awards expire at the end of the standard degree program duration. The clock for the standard enrollment period begins on a student’s first day of class and expires at the conclusion of the t quarter for all programs.
- The total dollars available to be applied to a student’s account may not exceed, on a cumulative basis, more than 100% of charges for tuition. Grant and scholarship awards to any student, for any quarter, are limited to the total amount of tuition due that quarter.
- Grants and scholarships are awarded at the time of enrollment only. All decisions of the Scholarship Committee are final.
- Grants and scholarships are subject to cancellation on delinquent accounts.
In addition to scholarship specific requirements, all grants and scholarships are subject to forfeiture for:
- Poor academic performance
- Judicial infractions, including academic misconduct
- Delinquent student accounts
- Withdrawal from continuous enrollment
- Failure to meet cumulative Grade Point Average (cGPA) requirements
