Balances not covered by financial aid awards with a status of “accepted and verified” must be paid by the due date on the billing statement.

Please note: All initial financial aid packages are based on full-time enrollment. Enrollment is then reviewed after the add-drop period each semester. At that time, it is determined if changes will be made to financial aid awards based on enrollment.

The university awards merit scholarships based on information submitted on the application to include cumulative GPA, test scores and academic program. Other factors considered for scholarship amounts include housing status and state residency. The University of Mary Washington will change or rescind merit scholarships in the event housing or residency status changes after awarding.
