Financial Aid Process for International Degree Seeking Students Mount Union offers academic awards or scholarships and need-based financial aid to full-time degree-seeking students who do not already hold a bachelor’s degree.
Academic Awards and Scholarships At the time of acceptance, a number of academic awards and scholarships are determined automatically for those who qualify based on a review of the student’s academic credentials such as curriculum, grade point average, ACT/SAT and high school rank.
Presidential Scholarship Competition Any high school senior who has achieved an ACT score of at least 27 or SAT-I score of at least 1210 (CR+M) and has earned either a minimum grade point average of 3.5 or a high school rank in the top 15 percent of the class is eligible to compete for the University of Mount Union’s full-tuition Presidential Scholarships.
Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships are available to students who demonstrate exceptional talent in music, theatre or art. All scholarships must be determined by March 1 prior to the entering year.
Need-based aid is calculated from the information submitted on this form, which primarily looks at the income and assets of the student and his/her parents.
Total Direct Costs Total direct costs for the 2015-2016 Academic Year are $38,090. This figures does not include the cost of books, supplies, transportation or personal expenses.
Multiple Grants and Scholarships Policy The initial institutional academic award is offered without regard for financial need. Students who may be eligible for multiple institutional grants, academic awards or scholarships (as referenced above) will receive at least the value of the highest grant, academic award or scholarship. It is our policy not to “stack” multiple institutional awards on the basis of merit. Consideration that is given for any portion of a second grant/scholarship or award made up from Mount Union dollars will be based on financial need and will require that the student file the International Student Financial Aid Application.
