Savannah State University students have an array of scholarship opportunities available to them for many majors, degrees and class levels. Please note that if verification of enrollment is required to apply for a scholarship, the student must obtain that information from the Registrar's Office.

Internal Scholarships

Internal scholarship information can be found in several offices on campus. The Division of University Advancement, Financial Aid, and Financial Literacy departments work diligently to seek and provide awareness of scholarship opportunities for our students.

Scholarship Award Letters To Secure Classes

Based on Board of Regent's procedures (BPM 10.1.1), Savannah State University is no longer allowed to secure a student's course schedule without approved and awarded financial aid scholarships. This means that our office cannot accept written documentation from donors that scholarship checks are forthcoming to save students from the cancellation for non-payment. In order for scholarships to be included in the student account at the time of cancellation for non-payment, Savannah State University must receive payment from the scholarship donor prior to the advertised payment deadline. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate the payment deadline to the donor and to satisfy their balance due by the advertised payment deadline to avoid cancellation.
