Tuition Grant Application Received!

Thank you for requesting a Davenport University Tuition Grant!

  • You will receive an email confirmation of your request.  Respond to the request with your attached paperwork.
  • See paperwork requirements below.
  • All documents must be received by the deadlines outlined here.
  • To maintain eligibility for any tuition grant, you must maintain Standards of Academic Progress (SAP).  Even if your tuition grant was once a discount, you must now maintain SAP to continue receiving it.
  • The Davenport University Financial Aid Office will tentatively award your grant so that you can see it under your awards in the Student Connection.
  • The Davenport Partnership Grant is calculated based upon tuition charges only, so the exact amount of your grant will change as the tuition charges on your account change.
  • If you are not scheduled, your award will be estimated based upon an assumed schedule.  Once you are scheduled for courses, your award will be recalculated based on your actual schedule.  Once Davenport posts charges to your account, your award will be finalized based on your actual tuition charges.
  • Tuition Grants cannot be combined with Davenport academic scholarships.
  • You are not allowed to switch to a higher tuition grant even if you become eligible.
  • You cannot switch mid-year from one tuition grant to another.
  • State of Michigan and JCI discounts are handled by the Bursar's Office.
  • More information can be found here.

You can submit any paperwork to the Financial Aid Office by uploading the paperwork here, faxing it to 616-732-1141, dropping it off to a campus, or mailing it to:
