Hi all!
So I received the 4 year NROTC scholarship and will be placed at the University of Virginia.
Room and Board is not covered by this school, but I did receive financial aid money from the school as they go off your parents income. However, they have not entered my NROTC scholarship yet, they told me it should be entered soon and it will impact my amount of financial aid.
I was wondering if anyone knew if they will take away all the financial need, as I would like to put at least some of it to the Room and Board costs.
I appreciate any insight, thank you!

Your best source is the U of Virginia financial aid office. Congratulations on your NROTC scholarship.

Only UVA knows. It's possible it might all disappear.

UVA Financial Aid peeps should be able to hook you up with the hard/fast rules, surrounding your situation.

Plan for the worst, hope for the best...and put in all effort possible to help you avoid the former, and achieve the latter!

Best of luck to ya!

At my son’s school (BC), none of his financial aid and his academic scholarships were not taken away. In fact, he has a credit balance going into this year.

My boy's situation changed, when his 3AD scholarship got a school-based kicker.

The school is now paying his freshman year tuition, and basic r/b costs for his 3AD period. This is a pretty cool development.

The downside, however, is that his merit-based academic scholarship is going away. Financially, the kicker option is a much better deal...but a bummer he couldn't keep the merit-based money, to cover freshman r/b.

Oh, well.

All in all, he's only paying about 8% of his total 4-year degree costs, out-of-pocket.

First world problems....
