Normally, to receive and retain a scholarship, you must be enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences, Heider College of Business, or College of Nursing. In addition to the qualifying material listed for each scholarship, you must be accepted and enrolled full-time at Creighton to retain scholarship(s) for a maximum of four academic years or eight consecutive fall/spring semesters (exclusive of summer terms) or attaining the requirements to apply for graduation, whichever comes first. As new scholarships, not listed in the catalog, become available, selections are made in conjunction with the wishes of the donor. Most scholarships are renewable for additional years and continued eligibility is based on maintaining the specified cumulative grade point average for each scholarship and showing normal progression toward a degree. Students on disciplinary probation or suspension at Creighton University, as defined in the Student Discipline Policies and Procedures in the Creighton University Student Handbook, are not eligible for Creighton Scholarship funds. Unless otherwise specified, all University controlled scholarships, individually or in combination, may not exceed the value of tuition, and may only be applied toward tuition charges.

If you have submitted all required credentials necessary for admission by January 15 of your senior year, you will automatically be given priority consideration for all competitive academic and service/leadership scholarships. Individuals who complete their admission requirements after January 15 are eligible for academic and service/leadership scholarships based on the availability of funds. Most merit scholarships are awarded at the time of admission to the University and honored for eight semesters for incoming freshman. Most scholarships do not require a separate application, your admission credentials serve this purpose. The Admission Office will contact you if additional forms or information is needed.

The four year/eight semester limitation begins upon your matriculation at Creighton and is accumulated consecutively. If you leave Creighton any time during this period, you automatically forfeit all future scholarship eligibility previously granted, unless you receive an approved Leave Of Absence (LOA) from your school. It is your responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office of this action prior to your temporary separation from the University. Semesters absent under an LOA do not count against the eight semester limitation.

Scholarships awarded to entering undergraduates can be continued if you are admitted to one of Creighton’s post-baccalaureate programs before the end of the eight semester limit. If you enter a program of study leading to a D.D.S., D.P.T., O.T.D., J.D., M.D., M.A., M.B.A., M.S., M.Ed., M.S.A.P.M., Pharm.D., D.N.P., Ed.D., or Ph.D. degree, your scholarship is continued until eight consecutive semesters have expired. Scholarship values based on a percentage of tuition will be calculated on the prevailing undergraduate tuition rate in effect during the time you are in a post-baccalaureate program of study.

Outside, Private Scholarships

A scholarship(s) you have secured from an outside source must be reported to the Financial Aid Office and may comprise all or a portion of your aid award. Receipt of an outside award may result in a revision of the financial award offered by Creighton. Normally, any revision occurs first in loan or employment programs.

Receipt of a full-tuition outside scholarship will exclude a student from receiving the monetary value of his/her Creighton University scholarship. However, students will be accorded the recognition of a University award, and should an outside scholarship be forfeited, the University would review its offer subject to the stipulation of the program.
