New and qualified returning University College part-time undergraduates who enroll for one class will be eligible to receive a tuition grant in the first, second, and third consecutive semesters. Both matriculated and non-matriculated students can qualify. Students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree are not eligible. The incentive program represents a mutual commitment between serious part-time students and University College of Syracuse University.

To qualify for this grant, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be a new student (matriculated or non-matriculated), or a continuing student who has not been enrolled at University College or Syracuse University for over 5 years.
  2. Not be receiving full tuition subsidy through another source (e.g., employee benefits, etc.). This is a tuition-only award and can cover only the balance of tuition not covered by another source. If you receive Remitted Tuition Benefits (RTB) from SU, you are not eligible for this grant. If you receive partial tuition subsidy, the Incentive Grant will cover only the remaining balance of tuition or 50 percent, whichever is lower.
  3. Enroll in three credits, placing a 25 percent deposit at the time of registration. If you wish to drop the course(s) by the financial drop deadline of the semester, the deposit will be refunded. If you remain in the course, an Incentive Grant in the amount of 50 percent will be awarded. If you drop the class after the 100% financial drop deadline, the grant will be removed from your account and you will be responsible for paying the remaining tuition cost. The amount will be calculated based on the refund percentage at the time when you drop the class. Refer to calendar pages of the semester’s course schedule or contact the Bursar and Registration Office for specific financial drop deadline dates each semester.
  4. Have not previously earned a bachelor’s degree.
