Most scholarships are now past the deadline. Scholarships for readmit students can still be applied for. Scholarships can be applied for each year at Charlotte beginning in late October. Scholarships must be applied for. We do not use an automatic merit scholarship process.
Notification for scholarship offers have been delayed this year and should be by the end of July, but possibly longer. If you have applied for scholarships and are awarded one, you will receive an email. The scholarship offer will also appear in your scholarship portal. Renewal award notification will also take place in the summer.
Scholarships for fall 2024 may not be visible in the student’s Financial Aid statement until early August. However, they should be visible on the student’s account before the first payment deadline. Disbursement of awarded scholarships is done by the Financial Aid Office 10 days before classes start for the semesters listed on the award letter.
