    Multiple Scholarships

    Unless otherwise stated, students may only receive one scholarship at a time from the CAU Scholarship Program but may have other external scholarships in addition to those awarded by our College.

    Award Disbursement

    All scholarships are waivers of tuition, apply to tuition only, and will not result in a cash payment to students. Unless otherwise stated, scholarships awarded are generally split evenly among the terms in the student’s academic year. Applicants selected to receive a scholarship will receive a letter from the campus director notifying him/her of the award.


    Scholarships are non-transferable and may not be recycled. If a recipient withdraws from the College or fails to maintain eligibility, the scholarship is rescinded and may not be awarded to another recipient.

    Campus Transfers

    If, during their enrollment, a scholarship recipient transfers to another CAU campus, the recipient may retain the portion of the scholarship award available but must still meet all eligibility requirements.
