2014-15 Marshall University Merit-based Scholarship Programs


Need Base Scholarship
The following financial aid programs are available to students who demonstrate financial need and in some cases meet other criteria.

    • Federal Pell Grant (up to $5,775) – awarded to undergraduates who have not earned a bachelor’s degree and who have exceptional financial need. Undergraduates taking 3 or more credits may receive Federal Pell Grant. Beginning July 1, 2012, the maximum life-time number of semesters or equivalent the student may receive Federal Pell Grant is 12 semesters.

    • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) – awarded to Federal Pell Grant eligible undergraduates pursing their first bachelor’s degree. Federal SEOG is available to undergraduates who take 3 or more credits. Students with exceptional financial need, equated with a zero Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as indicated on the student’s Student Aid Report (SAR) are considered first.  Because Federal SEOG funding is limited, priority is given to applicants meeting the March 1 FAFSA filing deadline.

    • WV Higher Education Grant (up to $2,600 per academic year) – Recipients must be U.S. citizens, WV residents (student and parents) for 12 months immediately preceding March 1 prior to the academic year. Students receiving WV Higher Education Grant must demonstrate financial need, enroll full time and maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA). In addition, students must earn a minimum of 24 credit hours to renew the grant. The maximum number of semesters or equivalent the student may receive WV Higher Education Grant is 8 semesters (or 4 years). Students must file the FAFSA by April 15 prior to the academic year the student plans to enroll.

    • WV Higher Education Adult Part-Time Student (HEAPS) Grant ($650 – $1950 per academic year) – awarded to part-time WV residents (resident for a minimum of 12 months) who demonstrate financial need and maintain a 2.0 grade point average. Funding for this program is limited; therefore, all part-time WV students who qualify will be considered to the extent of funding availability.

    • Achievement Tuition Waiver Grant for Metro Students with Financial Need

    • Achievement Tuition Waiver Grant – Tier 1 for Non-resident Students with Financial     Need

    • Achievement Tuition Waiver Grant – Tier 2 for Non-resident Students with Financial  Need


Loan Programs

Many students must rely on educational loans to cover at least some portion of their educational costs. Educational loans are available to undergraduate and graduate students as well as parents of undergraduate students.


When you file the FAFSA, the Office of Student Financial Assistance automatically considers your eligibility for the Federal Perkins Loan and Federal Direct Loan. However, for other loan programs, you will have to take additional steps or meet certain criteria for consideration.


Student loan borrowing is in investment in your future. When deciding to borrow, it is very important that you obtain the best possible loans available to you in terms of interest rates and repayment options. The Office of Student Financial Assistance will always offer you the best educational loans available and your maximum student loan eligibility. However, you should only consider borrowing only an amount that you absolutely need to keep your loan indebtedness as low as possible. Remember that you have to repay these funds at a later time and will want to have a modest loan repayment amount when that time comes.


Below is information on various loan programs available to Marshall University students:

    • Federal Perkins Loan
    • Federal Direct Loan
    • Federal Direct PLUS Loan
    • Private Alternative Loans

























    • Spring Semester (January to May) – October 15
