Utah State University recently made changes to two non-resident scholarships that could make it more affordable for your children or grandchildren to become Aggies, too.
Thanks to new legislation from the State of Utah, USU has been able to make changes to the Nonresident Waiver and Legacy Waiver scholarships that may benefit you and your family.
Here are those changes, and what they mean for you.
The qualifications for the Nonresident Waiver have been expanded. Now out-of-state students with an index score of 113 or greater (see what this means) will be automatically considered for this scholarship, when they apply for admission to Utah State. This award will waive the entire portion of nonresident tuition for one year, saving them approximately $12,000.
And it gets even better. While on the scholarship, your student can earn Utah residency, which only takes one year, meaning they’ll pay the in-state rate for the remainder of their time at USU.
In the past the Legacy Waiver has helped children of graduated Aggies, who live outside Utah, attend USU for the same cost as in-state students. The Legacy Waiver is now available to both children and grandchildren of Aggie graduates. Students on this scholarship do not need to gain residency. The waiver saves them roughly $12,000 per year and applies to their entire tenure at Utah State.
Both of these scholarships are still available for the Fall 2013 semester by applying for admission. For more information on how to help your children and grandchildren become Aggies and continue the legacy, contact the Admissions Office at 800-488-8108 or visit us online at www.usu.edu/admissions.
