MARYLAND STATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Maryland State Scholarships are available to individuals who have been Maryland residents for a minimum of one year. To apply, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before March 1st of each year and apply for the scholarship at mdcaps.mhec.state.md.us/MDCAPS. Recipients will be notified by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.

OUTSIDE SCHOLARSHIPS

Outside Scholarships are financial aid funds awarded through outside agencies to assist students with their educational expenses. Contact the Financial Aid Office or visit www. muih.edu/admissions/financial-aid for a list of scholarship websites.

RETURN OF FEDERAL FUNDS

If a student withdraws, drops out, is dismissed, or takes a voluntary break in enrollment before completing more than 60 percent of a trimester or period of enrollment, MUIH is required to return federal funds disbursed and not yet earned by the student to the lender no later than 45 days after the effective date of the student’s termination of enrollment.

The amount to be returned will be calculated as follows:

Percentage of earned aid = Number of days completed up to the withdrawal date

Total days in the payment period or term

Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.

Funds to be returned = (Aid that could not be disbursed – Percentage of earned aid) x Total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term

Funds will be returned to the lender in the following order:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
  • Federal Direct Graduate (PLUS) Loans

Any balance remaining on the student’s account once funds are returned to the lender will be promptly due to MUIH.
