Undergraduate Scholarship Eligibility

Students admitted to a CAS undergraduate major degree program and students who are enrolled in a CAS professional track who are advised by a CAS advisor in the Health Professions Student Center are eligible, including current students, incoming freshmen, and transfer students. Not sure if you are eligible? Contact your CAS undergraduate advisor to find out!

By completing the WSU General Scholarship Application, you will be automatically considered for all scholarships that you are eligible for at the college, department/school/program, and university levels.

Important Eligibility Considerations

  • If a scholarship recipient changes degree programs and/or or does not maintain the eligibility requirements during the scholarship period, the scholarship offer(s) may be rescinded and the funds, if disbursed, will be returned to the College of Arts and Sciences.
  • Non-admitted and undeclared major/minor degree seeking students are not eligible for CAS scholarships, including students who are undecided or who are enrolled only in a CAS certificate program.
  • Once a pre-health or pre-vet student admits to a health or veterinary degree program, such as Nursing or Veterinary School, they are no longer eligible to receive CAS pre-health or pre-vet scholarships through the Health Professions Student Center, even if they are attending WSU.
  • If a student is in collections with WSU they are ineligible. Per the WSU Student Financial Services policy any student in collections will not receive any scholarship funds.
