To ensure the scholarship is applied to your account, students must fill out the Summer Financial Aid application on The JumpStart Scholarship is uploaded AFTER a student has attended JumpStart KickOff and/or checked in with the JumpStart office. It usually takes 1-2 weeks for the scholarship to appear on the student's financial aid package.

If a student does not comply or follow through with the set requirements for JumpStart, the JumpStart office will rescind the scholarship award, and the student will be responsible for any and all expenses incurred on the student's Bursar account.
