Most scholarships and awards are for a period of one academic year (nine months) which includes Fall/Spring. However, some at MUW can be renewed for additional academic years, or until graduation, whichever occurs first. All scholarship recipients must maintain continuous fulltime enrollment and earn at least 24 hours per academic year at MUW and maintain a 2.5 or higher MUW cumulative grade point average. Students may receive more than one type of scholarship to attend MUW. However, total MUW award package, including state, federal, institutional, and private funds may not exceed total cost of attendance. Scholarship awards will be adjusted should the total amount exceed this cost.

The total amount of institutional scholarships awarded by the university may not exceed the total cost of tuition, room, board and a book stipend.
