Financial need is determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Students applying for scholarships with a financial need consideration should submit the FAFSA by March 1.  www.fafsa.ed.gov Only those students admitted to ETSU will be considered for scholarships. ETSU does not use "superscores" for scholarship purposes. Unless otherwise stated in the awards letter, scholarships are granted for a maximum of eight semesters. Scholarships are awarded for fall and spring semesters and are not available for the summer semester. Scholarship awards are based on the availability of funds and the criteria set forth by the appropriate governing body and are subject to change. Unless otherwise stated, scholarships are only awarded to full-time students. Unless otherwise stated, scholarships are not renewed automatically.  Recipients are encouraged to read the information sent with the scholarship announcement or ask the program coordinator for renewal information.

Full academic scholarship support at ETSU is defined as those scholarships, or combinations of scholarships which provide the current cost of education including: tuition and standard fees, a semi-private room in a residence hall and meal plan (I.e., the Resident Advantage Plan), and $1000 per semester for books and other incidental fees. Full scholarship support does not necessarily cover all expenses incurred by a student attending ETSU. ETSU reserves the right to limit internally funded scholarships to an amount that does not exceed these direct costs. Scholarships or loans received from sources other than ETSU or the State of Tennessee shall not be limited, nor included, in the assessment of funds granted for full scholarship support.  This policy is available in the ETSU Scholarship Office.
