Graduate Incentive Award (GIA) Graduate Assistant Scholarship (GAS) Formerly - University Graduate Scholarships (UGS) • University Graduate Scholarship (UGS) name has been changed and will reflect on your bill as either: GIA – Graduate Incentive Award GAS – Graduate Assistant Scholarship They type of award is determined by the Graduate Studies Office. • This is a tuition scholarship funded by the University. • In your offer letters and in your guidelines the tuition scholarship award is referred to as UGS. The way the award will be reflected on your bill will be as a Graduate Incentive Award or Graduate Assistant Scholarship. CEAS has established policy guidelines related to GIA, GAS (formerly UGS) support. Everyone who receives an award has signed a UGS guidelines form outlining the rules and regulations of receiving this award. The name changed does not change any of the responsibilities, rules or regulations because of the award name change. A copy of the guidelines has been given to you at check- in and is available in the GSO, 665 Baldwin Hall. Scholarship policy and guidelines must be followed. • To use any University facilities you must be a registeredstudent. • If you drop/withdraw classes, and fall below 15 credit hours after the 100% refund schedule, the UGS will be withdrawn and you will be required to pay all the tuition due. • If you are going to drop and add classes, be sure to add the class BEFORE you drop a class.
