Special Note About Out of State Scholarship Students

At their June 9, 2014 meeting, the UNA Board of Trustees approved a resolution adopting a portion of the provisions of House Bill 424 pertaining to out of state students being eligible to pay the resident tuition rate for enrollment at the University of North Alabama.  This provision allows out of state students receiving a scholarship award of $250 or more to be eligible for the resident tuition rate.  The out of state student must meet the following criteria to be eligible to pay the resident tuition rate: 

The student must be a full-time undergraduate student enrolled at UNA who is receiving an institutional scholarship award of $250 or more in recognition of a particular talent or ability, provided such student possessed the talent or ability at the time of initial enrollment and maintains continuous scholarship eligibility at UNA.  Scholarship funds provided by the UNA Foundation and scholarships funded by external organizations do not qualify the student for the resident tuition rate.

The student may no longer be eligible for the resident tuition rate at UNA if the student does not maintain continuous scholarship eligibility.
