The application is now closed. Students will be notified of their account status via the Message Center in their scholarship account on a rolling basis beginning mid-April, but no later than May 15. If you have not received a message by May 15, reach out to our office immediately.
Students who receive a message indicating that they are on-track to earn the scholarship will be required to submit final documentation (including final transcripts and information regarding Fall 2021 plans) by July 1, 2021. Each student has an individualized final document checklist in their account that is updated upon receipt of the required documents. Students should leverage this resource to know which documents are required and which documents have been received.
The Final Review Checklist and FAQ document provides general guidance on what to submit by July 1.
Award information: Students are notified the outcome of the final review via the Message Center in their Regents’ Scholarship account. If it is determined that the student qualifies, information will be provided to the college they are attending to evaluate the award amount for which a student may qualify. The award is applied toward tuition and fees after other state aid has been awarded to the student. Additional award information will be available in your “on-track” notification.
A deferment is used to put your Regents’ Scholarship “on hold.” Students must submit a deferment request if they have applied for the scholarship, but will not attend college for the fall semester immediately after graduating from high school.
A deferment is generally used when you are serving in the military, have a major medical issue, or are participating in a humanitarian/religious service. Deferment requests for reasons such as traveling, attending a non-eligible college/university or working to save money will not be approved. Requests for deferment are evaluated on a case-by-case basis with no guarantee of approval. Even if you are granted a deferment, the scholarship will still expire five years from the date of high school graduation.
Official information regarding the Regents’ Scholarship is produced by the Utah System of Higher Education or the Utah Board of Higher Education and published on ushe.edu. Do not rely on information published by any other entity.
