Proof of enrollment shows the courses you are enrolled in for the fall semester. This can be submitted by August 30, or when your school allows you to enroll. We accept unofficial transcripts as proof of enrollment, but your name and student ID must be clearly visible. Please do not sent your acceptance letter or bill.

Can my scholarship be combined with other scholarships?
