Multiple Tuition Reductions

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


Award Disbursement

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



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 If a recipient withdraws from the College or fails to maintain eligibility, the award is rescinded and may not be awarded to another recipient.


Campus Transfers

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