Award Information Background Pic

Awards

Notifications of aid offered for attending ASUMH are made via email to your ASUMH school email account.  Initial awards assume the student will be enrolled full-time (12 or more credit hours per semester) for the entire school year. 

Student that are determined to be ineligible for aid because they are not be mantaining the ASUMH Satisfactory Academic Progress policy must appeal to receive future aid, even if the aid was offered prior to the determination of ineligibility.

Grants

Federal Grants are awarded based upon need as determined by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Pell Grants and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity (SEOG) Grants do not have to be repaid as long as you complete the hours you are enrolled in to receive these funds. 

Required Actions for Loans

Direct Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized Loan (Note: Loan offers require additional actions to be taken by the student.)

Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans are considered a debt which must be repaid and are not excused in bankruptcy.

WORK STUDY

Work Study is only awarded if a student qualifies for work study and has been offered a job. Prior to each semester the ASUMH student body is emailed asking for students interested in doing work study to complete an application process. The list of student applicants is provided to the campus departments that have positions available. The departments conduct interviews, make their selection and instructs the student to visit to the Human Resources Office to complete paperwork followed by a final visit to the ASUMH Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

VETERANS BENEFITS and PRIVATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Veterans Education Benefits can be impacted by assistance from other sources that is specifically designated to pay for the same tuition and/or fees. Contact the Veteran’s Administration Benefits Representative in the Career Pathways Office at Arkansas State University – Mountain Home for further assistance.

Private Scholarships - Private funding from outside entities that are not individually listed on an award letter can be listed as Miscellaneous Private Scholarship. This could be comprised of one or more scholarships that have been reported to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
