Out-of-State Scholarship

This award provides for a renewable scholarship up to the cost of UT's out-of-state surcharge (approx. $9,338) for students outside of Ohio and Monroe County, Mich., who are admissible to UT.                     

If a new, academically qualified student (2.75 cumulative high school GPA or 21 ACT/990 SAT) enrolls for classes prior to the Fall 2015 semester (Spring 2015 or Summer 2015), the student will be eligible to receive the Out-of-State Award valued at the full amount of the out-of-state surcharge.  If a new, academically qualified student enrolls for classes the Fall 2015 semester or afterwards, the student will receive a minimum Out-of-State Award of $5,000 and up to the remainder of the value of the out-of-state surcharge based on their financial need as determined by the FAFSA. In addition to the Out-of-State Award, eligible students can receive the scholarship amounts on the scholarship grid based on their cumulative high school GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and strength of curriculum.
