Scholarship Award Check Processing


In an effort to process scholarship awards as efficiently as possible and prevent the delay of funding to the student’s account, the following award information is required on your scholarship award check (s) and/or included on your cover letter:

Scholarship checks must be made payable to the University of Houston-Downtown.

  • Student’s name,
  • Student’s ID#,
  • Specific term(s), which funds are to be used,
  • Amount for each term, if more than one term;
  • Check(s) must in whole dollars amounts, we cannot process cents; and
  • Include the minimum number of enrollment hours that student must be enrolled to be eligible to receive the scholarship award if this is information is relevant.

It is necessary that student(s) make other payment arrangements with the Student Accounting office, if missing information causes a delay in the processing of scholarship award check. Please submit scholarship award checks at least 10 business days prior to the tuition payment deadline, to allow time for processing.

Student who are registered, but have not made payment by the tuition payment deadline will have their registration cancelled. Students must report changes in their enrollment status. Any changes in the number of enrollment hours, at the time of posting awards, will cause a delay in the processing of scholarship awards.

Changes in enrollment hours must be reported to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid by submitting a Revision Request form. The Revision Request form can be found under the main Financial Aid webpage under Financial Aid Toolbox.
