    Hey all,

    Quick question. I received my NROTC scholarship in February to Norwich University. Does anyone know if the scholarship covers the initial enrollment fee or if that has to be covered by me?

    Thanks!

    You should speak with the Student Account Services at your school. I had the conversation with SDSU yesterday and was advised that as soon as the school receives the list of scholarship students, the records are coded to show as "paid". If they don't receive the info by the payment due date, we should make the payment and then we will be reimbursed (by the school)once the school receives the scholarship list. We have to make our tuition payment in late July so if the account has not been flagged by that point, we are going to sign up on the installment plan and just make a partial payment that will then be reimbursed. I would imagine that schools handle this in a variety of ways so probably a good idea to discuss with them. I would love to hear from others who have already been through this process. Us newbies would appreciate your counsel and guidance!

    In re reading your post, I realized that you referenced the initial enrollment fee. We paid that a few weeks ago and the accounts office said that we would be reimbursed for that once they receive the scholarship confirmation from NROTC.

    You should send in the initial enrollment fee. If I recall it is due May 1.

    This is simple. Unless your NROTC unit has a special arrangement with the school, if your initial enrollment fee is not received by May 1 you will lose your spot. Personally I wouldn't take any chances and send in the deposit. You'll get reimbursed by the school later.

    No, you are responsible for enrollment fees.

    There you go OP. It doesn't get any more official than P-Flying17. It's your responsibility.

    Also ensure you speak with your unit because funds for tuition payments are not normally released until October. Parents may get a bill. The unit can direct you on how it is handled with school as far as the first tuition payment. Normally it is deferred but it differs for each school.
