Out-of-State Award 

$5,000 to $9,338 per year (for incoming Direct from high school freshman for Fall 2016)

Minimum Academic Requirements: 2.75 cumulative high school GPA or a 21 ACT/990 SAT

This four-year, renewable award assists with UT's out-of-state surcharge ($9,338) for students outside of Ohio and Monroe County, Mich., who are admissible to the University and meet the minimum academic requirements of at least a 2.75 cumulative high school GPA or 21 ACT/990 SAT.  Students eligible to receive less than the full award also may qualify for a need-based award for up to the remaining $4,338 of the out-of-state surcharge.  Submission of the  Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for this additional consideration.

  • Honors Award Recipients ($6,000):  Full Out-of-State Award = $9,338
  • Regents Award Recipients ($3,500):  80% of the Out-of-State Award = $7,470
  • Trustee Award Recipients ($1,500):  60% of the Out-of-State Award = $5,600
  • Deans Award Recipients ($1,000):  53.5% of the Out-of-State Award = $5,000


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.

Renewal criteria includes maintaining a 2.75 cumulative GPA and earning 27 UT credit hours within two semesters of the academic year.  For students who do not meet these requirements, UT maintains an appeal process detailed in the full terms and conditions.
