Financial Aid Policies

Eligibility Statement

Mount Union Scholarship and Grant eligibility is determined upon acceptance to the University and completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The following information describes eligibility criteria for the various federal, state and institutional funds that are available through Mount Union.

Policy for Multiple Merit Awards

A merit-based scholarship or award is offered without regard for financial need. Students who may be eligible for multiple Mount Union scholarships and awards will receive at least the value of the highest scholarship or award.

Consideration that is given for any portion of a second scholarship or award from Mount Union will be based on financial need and will require that the student file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The maximum award equals full tuition; students who receive a full tuition scholarship are not eligible for additional Mount Union scholarships or awards.  All University scholarships, awards, and grants are coordinated through the Office of Student Financial Services. 

Following the NCAA Division III philosophy, the University of Mount Union does not offer athletic scholarships. The University does award scholarships and financial aid for student athletes on the same basis as it does for every other Mount Union students.

Maintaining Your Federal Financial Aid Eligibility:

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal regulations require the University of Mount Union to establish Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards for students receiving federal financial aid. In order for a student to continue receiving federal financial aid, the student is required to meet 3 standards of academic progress each academic year.

  • Completion Rate (at least 67% of the credit hours attempted are earned)
  • Cumulative GPA (see handbook for minimum GPA requirements per credit hours attempted)
  • Maximum Timeframe (must complete degree within 150% of the published length of the program)

The Office of Student Financial Services will review the SAP standards of each student at the end of the Spring semester. Students will be notified if/when they are not meeting the standard(s). Information concerning the appeal process will be included. Details about the SAP policy can be found in the University’s catalog.
