Merit Tuition Awards are offered to incoming students. Eligibility is based on a prospective student's admissions application.
To be considered for a Merit Tuition Award, you must:
- Be admitted to CWU by February 1st
- Complete the FAFSA — You do not have to demonstrate financial need
Eligible students who apply after February 1st will be considered for merit awards as funds remain available.
Merit Tuition Awards are offered for the first year of attendance only — they are not renewable. You must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA or better for each term while receiving a Merit Tuition Award. If you fail to maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA, your award will be canceled for that academic term.
Merit Tuition Awards apply to tuition only — they cannot be used for housing, fees, other charges, or study abroad.
