What information is needed on the checks and/or correspondence?
The student's full name and last four ssn number, and Personal Information should be included on the check and/or any correspondence. Indicate if the check is to cover academic year expenses or expenses for a particular semester (fall or spring or
summer session). If there is no indication for the time period the check is to cover, the funds will automatically be used for the academic year (half for the fall semester, half for the spring semester.)
It is preferable that checks be made payable only to the Benedict College. If the check is made payable to the student or co-payable to the student and the College, additional time may be needed to obtain the student's endorsement on the check this could cause a delay in the student receiving the scholarship funds. The donor's name, address, and phone number should be included on the check
or with the correspondence in case the Office of Student Financial Aid needs to contact the donor.
Are students required to enroll full-time?
It is assumed that the student will be enrolled fulltime (12 or more hours per semester). If the
scholarship does not require full-time enrollment, indicate this on the check or in the correspondence that accompanies the check.
How can students get verification of their enrollment?
After students have registered for courses, they can go to the Office of the Registrar to obtain an enrollment verification letter and, if required submit it to the donor or agency.
