Institutional Scholarships

Methodist University offers a variety of Institutional Scholarships, which are listed alphabetically below. A student must be degree-seeking, enrolled full time (12 s.h. or more) in the day program and completing his/her first bachelor’s degree to be considered for any institutional scholarships. A full-time day degree-seeking student completing his/her second bachelor’s degree, the first bachelor’s degree not being from Methodist University, may be eligible for a Transfer, Founders and Opportunity, Pastor’s Certificate and Greatest Gift. Specific eligibility requirements and guidelines are listed for each scholarship. However NO institutional scholarships will be awarded to a student who attends Methodist University in excess of 5 academic years (10 semesters), regardless of whether the student received financial aid for all 5 academic years (10 semesters). Students who intend to compete in inter-collegiate athletic programs should be aware that Methodist University is a Division III NCAA Institution and has no scholarship funds based on athletic skills or ability.

All institutional scholarship amounts vary depending on whether the student is living off campus or residing on campus and in some instances can be taken away if the student moves off campus, drops below full time status or withdraws during the semester. There is a cap on institutional / endowed scholarships monies a student can receive per semester for on-campus/ off-campus. For cap amounts, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. The scholarships that exceed the cap are as follows: Methodist University Personnel, Minister’s Dependent (if the student resides off campus), Seniors Citizens, National Tuition Exchange and NC Independent Tuition Exchange. Methodist University offers several performance scholarships. However the student must successfully complete the minimum requirements as set forth by the department offering the scholarship. The performance scholarships that are not a part of the institutional cap are listed in their descriptions. Performance scholarships are not official until the department notifies the Office of Financial Aid, which is usually at the end of the semester. There are NO institutional scholarships available for the Master’s Program.
