USU Scholarships and FSA ID Update

Hello InTech Families!

I wanted to share some updated information about USU Scholarships and the FSA ID this year as you continue to prepare and apply:

USU Scholarships

Here are the official details on the USU scholarships: USU Scholarships

Merit Scholarships

  • The deadline to apply for these scholarships is Dec 1st.
  • Students are automatically put in a pool for USU’s merit scholarships when they apply to USU.
  • There was no change to USU’s Scholarship Index.
  • All of USU’s Merit Scholarships now last 4 years! In the past only the Presidential scholarship covered 4 years.
  • If your student is super close to the next level of scholarship and has taken rigorous courses (AP, Concurrent Enrollment, Early College), and may have a low ACT score, they may be able to bump up to the next level by applying for the Comprehensive Scholarship Review (CSR).
  • The application will open Monday on their site. Deadline to apply is Jan 10th.

Non-Academic Awards

  • The Utah State Promise (Financial Need): After all aid and scholarships are applied to a Utah State Promise recipient’s account, USU will then pay any remaining balance due resulting from tuition and student body fees. Requires FAFSA. Deadline is Feb 1st.
  • USU has several great leadership scholarships, please navigate to the provided link for more information. Most deadlines are either Dec 1st or Jan 1st.

  • Even though we are months away from the FAFSA opening for the year, students and parents may still create their FSA ID now.
  • Your FSA ID is the legal signature used to sign your FAFSA.
  • You will use it every time you fill out the FAFSA.
  • If you attend the FAFSA night with a pre-created FSA ID, it will be a very short process.
  • Students – avoid connecting it with your InTech email address if possible, as it is deleted in June.

FAFSA Night at InTech will be January 17th.
