A student may lose their activity scholarship if s/he is cut from an activity due to disciplinary reasons. The Vice-President of Enrollment and the Athletic Director will review the activity scholarship status. Disciplinary issues will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The VPEM will contact the student and inform them of the scholarship decision.


The student will retain the full value of the activity scholarship if s/he:
1. discontinue participation in an activity for which s/he is receiving a scholarship
2. are cut from an activity by a coach/director/advisor
3. become injured and is forced to discontinue involvement in the activity for which the student is receiving a scholarship.
4. becomes ineligible to participate in an activity for which s/he is receiving an activity scholarship.


If a student discontinues involvement in an activity for reasons other than disciplinary reasons and retains the value of the activity award, the award will be renamed to indicate the student is not participating (NP in that activity. (For example, a Football Scholarship will become Football Scholarship NP.)


If a student who is receiving an activity scholarship becomes enrolled part-time taking a minimum of six credits, the activity scholarship is awarded at 15% of their total tuition charge throughout the student’s enrollment at UJ.A student taking fewer than 6 credits would not receive an activity scholarship. This calculation applies only to scholarship for an activity in which the student is involved (athletics, band, choir, theatre, etc…). If the student is in more than one activity, s/he would receive a single activity award not to exceed 15% of the total tuition charge.


A student who graduates with their bachelor’s degree and has athletic eligibility may enroll in our Master of Arts in Leadership program and receive an athletic scholarship equal to 15% of the total tuition charge throughout the student’s enrollment in the MAL program. If the student is in more than one activity, s/he would receive a single activity award not to exceed 15% of the total tuition charge.


A student who is receiving an activity scholarship cannot also be paid work study funds for involvement of the same kind in that activity. (For example, a student receiving an athletic scholarship to be a student manager for that sport cannot also be paid work study funds for working with the same sport.)

The Performing Arts scholarships (vocal, instrumental, theatre) are awarded by audition.


If you would like to setup an audition, please contact your Tayler.Meier@uj.edu.
