Have you been notified that you will receive a scholarship from outside of ASU (high school, church, business, etc.)? If yes, follow the steps below to ensure your checks arrive on time!

  1. Let Us Know

    Please complete our “Outside Scholarship Form” below to let us know you will be receiving any scholarships outside of ASU so we can prepare your award appropriately.

    You do not have to include any scholarships that you have been awarded from Angelo State University (i.e., Carr, Band, Cheerleading, etc.).

  2. Let the Donor Know

    Your scholarship donor will make the check payable to Angelo State University on your behalf. To ensure speedy processing of your scholarship award, provide the donor with your ASU Campus ID (CID) number and our mailing address.

    Scholarship Programs Office
    ASU Station #11048
    San Angelo, TX 76909

    When our office receives and processes a check for you, we will send you an award notice to your ASU email account.

  3. Proof of Enrollment

    Your scholarship donors may ask for proof of your enrollment. There are several ways you can provide this information. Most donors will accept a copy of either your class schedule or bill from RamPort.

    Class Schedule

    • Log in to RamPort.
    • Click on “Registration.”
    • Select the “View Schedule” icon at the top of the page.
    • Select the appropriate term and click “Submit.”

    Student Bill

    • Log in to RamPort.
    • Click on “Financial Aid & Billing.”
    • Select the “View Bill” icon at the top of the page.
    • Select the appropriate term and click “Submit.”

    Enrollment Verification Form

    To request enrollment verification be sent by the Registrar’s Office, please complete the Enrollment Verification Form.

    The Scholarship Programs Office cannot release proof of enrollment to donors due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

  4. Keep Up with Your Outside Scholarships

    We keep a list of your Outside Scholarships as resources on RamPort. To follow the progress of your outside scholarships, please follow the steps below.

    • Log in to RamPort.
    • Click on “Financial Aid & Billing.”
    • Click the “View/Accept Financial Aid Awards” button.
    • Select the appropriate term and click “Submit.”
    • Select the “Resources/Additional Information” tab.

    In the example below, the student let us know he would receive scholarships from the Norris Foundation and Burger King. Our office received the Burger King check and processed it as indicated by the cash receipt (CR) number beside the scholarship name. Our office has not received the Norris Foundation check yet as there is not a CR number beside the name.

  5. Awarding of Your Scholarships

    Our office will process scholarships exactly as the donor outlines. Should the donor not specify which term(s) the funds should be disbursed, we will automatically award funds as indicated below.

    • Awards of $500 or Less - Fall only or Spring only
    • Awards greater than $500 - Split between the Fall/Spring semesters

How Scholarships Affect Other Forms of Financial Aid

Scholarships may impact existing financial aid awards, so the Financial Aid Office will review your continued eligibility for federal, state and institutional grant/loan programs with every scholarship awarded.
