Optional Components - Coming Soon!

 

Book Scholarship

The Office of Undergraduate Education provides each CSI student with a book scholarship (up to $100) to cover the cost of books for ONE course during CSI. Students have the option to take two courses during the CSI program but only the cost of books for one course will be covered and students will need to purchase the books for their second course. 

 

Introduction to an Honors University (IHU) Scholarship

Upon successful completion of the CSI program (maintaining a 3.00 GPA or higher in CSI coursework), eligible students will receive a retroactive scholarship of $325 applied directly to their student account during the semester. 

 

Financial Aid

Financial aid is greatly limited during the summer term. Students must be enrolled for summer courses through the CSI program and demonstrate significant financial need per the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to qualify for financial aid during CSI. Students with significant financial need are those who qualify for the Federal Pell Grant. For more information, visit the Financial Aid website.

Students who sign a contract for CSI by May 1st will qualify for 2 payment installations (due May 20 and June 20).
