How are scholarships awarded?

Scholarships are awarded as part of a student’s financial aid package and applied as credits on the student’s Pellissippi State account for the semester of the award. In compliance with federal guidelines, financial aid and scholarships cannot disburse on the student’s billing account prior to a maximum of 10 days before each semester begins. If at any time credits on the bill exceed college charges (i.e. tuition, fees, on-campus housing), a refund can be issued for the difference.
