* Students enrolled in these five Fully-Online programs may take classes at both FSU and one of our approved community college locations.

** Students enrolled in these three Statewide programs may take classes at both FSU and GRCC. Students must be enrolled continuously full-time (at least 12 credit hours) with combined enrollment at both schools to qualify for the scholarship. Scholarships will not be awarded during the summer semester. The Scholarship amounts will be prorated based on the number of Ferris credit hours each student is enrolled for. Example: If a student is enrolled in 6 Ferris credit hours and 6 GRCC credit hours, this meets the full-time requirement for the scholarship. The student in this example would receive the prorated amount for 6 Ferris credit hours.
