FINANCIAL AID

OUR MISSION
Our ultimate goal is to try our best to give everyone a fair and equal opportunity to enroll in a Cedar Point course. We try to be flexible enough to accommodate special circumstances, but there are regulations we must abide by. If finances are stopping you from joining us at CPBS for the summer, we awarded more than $29,000 to students to cover room and board costs in 2014, so don't hesitate to apply for a scholarship! We want you to come to Cedar Point and have a great learning experience! So please, if you have a concern, feel welcome to stop in, call, or email me to discuss anything this website or the brochure doesn't address.

Thank you!
Jon Garbisch, Associate Director

Taking courses at Cedar Point is an excellent value for your tuition dollar. The tuition rate is the same as a campus course, and most campus student fees are waived. CPBS does not currently charge an extra course fee, and there is a room and board scholarship to help. To learn more about this scholarship, keep reading or contact the Cedar Point office in Manter Hall.

We also may have summer jobs to help pay for schooling. Please check our employment page for any available positions.

TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP, FILL OUT THE ONLINE APPLICATION or PLEASE RETURN A HARD COPY OF THE SCHOLARSHIP TO 101 MANTER HALL BY MARCH 1, 2015. (We often extend this dead line a few weeks so always ask if it is officially past).

 In order to be considered for a R&B scholarship:

  • Fill out an application form
  • Have a copy of your transcript sent to us
  • Get a letter of recommendation from a faculty member

Our funds come from the Deans of Arts and Sciences, Education and Human Sciences, Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and Cedar Point endowments. Awards are based on both academic standing and/or financial need. Note that several UNL tuition scholarships (i.e. Regents) require the student to notify the Financial Aid office that they have registered for a summer course. In Fall and Spring, this is automatic.
