► My scholarship has been cancelled, what do I do now?
Cancellation reason: I did not accept my WOU Foundation Scholarship by the specified deadline.

To maintain timely and effective awarding our office requires students to accept their WOU Foundation Scholarship by a specific deadline. Once the deadline has passed the WOU Financial Aid Office cancels all unaccepted scholarships and re-awards them to other deserving students.

Cancellation reason: I did not meet the renewal requirements of my scholarship.

Western Oregon University requires students to uphold specific academic criteria to maintain their scholarships over the renewal period. If a student does not meet the renewal requirements their scholarship is permanently revoked. Students who did not meet the renewal criteria of their award due to extraordinary circumstances may submit an appeal to the Scholarship Officer to have their scholarship reinstated. Scholarship Appeal forms are e-mailed to student WOU e-mail accounts at the conclusion of Spring term.

► Where is my WUE scholarship?
Western Oregon University is a proud participant of the Western Undergraduate Exchange program. Our university does not offer a WUE scholarship, however, WUE students save several thousand dollars by participating in the WOU Western Undergraduate Exchange program. To facilitate this program Western Oregon University provides WUE students a reduced tuition rate.
