Athletic Scholarships

Athletic Scholarships may cover all or part of the following charges depending on the type of Athletic Scholarship you are receiving. Regardless of the type of Athletic Scholarship that you are awarded, it is important for you to understand how they are awarded and if there is any additional financial responsibility that you may have. Below are descriptions of the types of Athletic Scholarships.womens volleyball

Tuition

If you are receiving a scholarship that covers your tuition and fees, the amount of scholarship will cover both the tuition and the fees charged for your classes.

For example: A student taking 15 hours in the Fall will have a Tuition charge $2,964 and the fees associated with those classes cost about $1,366. This student's Athletic Scholarship for tuition and fees would be $4,330 for that semester.

Tuition Only

Some students will be awarded for tuition only. Using the above example, the tuition for 15 hours cost $2,964. The tuition and fee charges for those 15 hours cost $4,330, but a student being awarded tuition only would only have the $2,964 covered by their scholarship and be responsible for paying the additional $1,366 for the fees which were not covered by the scholarship.

Fees Only

Some students will be awarded for fees only. Using the above example, a student being awarded fees only would have the $1,366 fee charge covered by their Athletic scholarship, but would be responsible for paying the $2,964 for the tuition charges.

Room

On Campus Housing

If you are receiving a scholarship that covers room and you live on campus, you will be issued a scholarship in the amount of a 4 bedroom on campus dorm. This scholarship will be applied directly to your housing bill. If you choose to live in a more expensive 2 bedroom on campus dorm, your scholarship for room will cover the amount of the 4 bedroom dorm and you will be responsible for paying the difference.

  • For example: If a 4 bedroom dorm costs $500/mo and you choose to live in a 2 bedroom dorm that is $600/month and you choose to live in a 2 bedroom dorm that is $600/month, your Athletic scholarship will cover $500/month and you will be responsible for paying the additional $100/month.

Off Campus Housing

If you are receiving a scholarship that covers your room but you live off campus, you will be issued a Cash Grant equivalent to the cost of a 4 bedroom on campus dorm. Unlike on campus housing where the scholarship is applied directly to your housing bill, you will be responsible for using these Scholarship funds to pay your rent.*

  • For example: If a 4 bedroom on campus dorm costs $500/month and you choose to live off campus in an apartment that costs $740/month, your Athletic scholarship will cover $500/month and you will be responsible for paying the additional $240/month.

*Note: You will only receive the full amount of your Cash Grant if you do not have a balance due at UTSA. If you have a balance due to UTSA, the Cash Grant funds will be applied towards your balance. If your Cash Grant exceeds your balance, you will receive the difference to assist you with your cost of living expenses. If your Cash Grant is less than your balance due, the full amount of the Cash Grant will be applied to your balance and you will not receive any funds to assist you with your living expenses.

Board

Living On Campus

If you are receiving a scholarship that covers board and you live on campus, the amount of the scholarship will cover the value of the highest meal plan. If you choose a smaller meal plan, you will be awarded the difference as a Cash Grant to assist you with the cost of meals that you may be eating off campus.

Living Off Campus

If you are receiving a scholarship that covers board and you live off campus, you will be issued a Cash Grant equivalent to the value of the highest meal plan option at UTSA. Unlike an on campus meal plan scholarship that is applied directly to your UTSA bill, the Cash Grant funds will be paid directly to you and will be responsible for using the funds to pay for any of your off campus meal expenses.*

*Note:

You will only receive the full amount of your Cash Grant if you do not have a balance due at UTSA. If you have a balance due to UTSA, the Cash Grant funds will first be applied towards your balance. If your Cash Grants exceeds your balance, you will receive the difference to assist you with your cost of living expenses. If your Cash Grant is less than your balance due, the full amount of the Cash Grant will be applied to your balance and you will not receive any funds to assist you with your living expenses.
