Financial Aid & Scholarships

You have financial options with your college planning, and we're here to help you find the best options for your situation.

Ideally, paying for your education is a long-term process of building and using a collection of savings, institutional aid, free money, and — if necessary — loans. However, there are many avenues for financing your education. Find out how financial aid and scholarships can help the financial pressure.


Will you be classified as a junior (60+ credit hours) by Fall 2024 or are you currently a junior, senior, or a graduate student enrolled in the College of Education and Human Development, classified as a full-time student, and have at least a 3.0 OVERALL GPA? If so, you may be eligible to receive a scholarship in the College of Education and Human Development.

Each year we award approximately $90,000 of scholarship funds to students in the College of Education and Human Development at our Annual Scholarship Banquet.

NOTE: There are no scholarships currently available for candidates in the Certification-Only Program-Alternative Path to Certification.

Scholarship Application

The 2024-2025 College of Education and Human Development Scholarship Application is now available. The deadline to complete the application is Thursday, April 30, 2024. No late applications will be accepted. Applicants should complete and submit only one online scholarship application.

Selection Process

Scholarships recipients are selected on a competitive basis and are based on your GPA, classification, major concentration, extracurricular activities, residency, and, in some cases, financial need. You will be notified by email if you have been selected to receive a scholarship. You are encouraged to attend the Scholarship Banquet which will be held in the Fall semester.

All scholarship recipients are selected by the Scholarship Committee. The letter will include the scholarship name, amount awarded, and an invite to attend the annual Scholarship Banquet in the Fall semester. 

Additional information about financial aid can be obtained by visiting the Office of Student Financial Aid.
