General Policies & Requirements – Institutional Aid

SAGU provides many institutional scholarships and grants. The following is important information regarding policies and requirements to receive institutional aid at SAGU.

  • Applications are available on each individual scholarship and grant page.
  • Students are required to apply for institutional aid prior to the end of late registration each semester. After the end of late registration, students cannot be awarded any additional institutional financial aid even if otherwise eligible.
  • All institutional scholarships and grants are subject to available funding. It is possible for a student to not receive a scholarship/grant that they would have otherwise been eligible to receive simply because there is no more funding available. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. In addition, students must be accepted, pay any required enrollment deposit, and select courses at least 60 days before the start of the next semester or risk having their institutional financial aid cancelled.
  • Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to receive institutional, federal, or state financial aid.
  • Students can generally receive more than one institutional scholarship at a time, though some scholarships cannot be combined. Please see each individual scholarship pages for details.
  • Students may only receive one institutional grant at a time.
  • Institutional aid is capped at 100% off tuition for students living on campus in SAGU housing.
  • Institutional aid is capped at 50% off tuition for students living off campus.
  • Institutional aid cannot cover fees of any kind. This includes the general fee, deferred payment plan fee, health services fee, academic support fee, graduation fee, applied music fees, etc.
  • Institutional aid cannot cover the cost of textbooks at any time.
  • Special program students (School of Ministry and Dual Credit) are not eligible to receive any institutional aid other than their program discount.
  • Doctoral students are not eligible to receive any institutional financial aid.
  • SAGU will not issue overpayment/refund checks to students receiving only scholarships and grants. In a case like this, institutional aid will be reduced as needed to make sure an overpayment/refund check is not issued from only institutional aid, donor scholarships, federal/state grants, or other outside scholarships.
