Departmental Scholarships

Departmental Scholarships
Once a student has been awarded a UHD scholarship, it will be available for credit towards the students' tuition and fee bill. If funds awarded are in excess of the student's tuition and fee bill, a credit will be applied to the student's Higher One card. The Student Accounting Office is responsible for processing student's refund payments.

Please note that it may be necessary for students make other payment arrangements with the Student Accounting Office, if a scholarship award has not posted to the student's account before tuition payment is due. Unreported changes from the student in the number of semester hours enrolled, at the time of posting, can also delay processing of scholarship awards.
