Why was the Nonresident Tuition Scholarship changed to a flat dollar amount?

The Nonresident Tuition Scholarship was changed to a flat annual dollar amount of $8,000 ($4,000 per semester) in conjunction with the transition to a full-time tuition rate for undergraduate students. The $8,000 award amount was based on the average Nonresident Tuition Scholarship awarded in the prior year. Previously, the value of the scholarship was driven by the tuition rate and varied with credit hour enrollment and the combination of enrollment in internet and face-to-face courses. Also prior to Fall 2013, the scholarship did not apply to internet course enrollments. Setting the scholarship award to a flat dollar amount for all nonresident students that qualify allows for consistency between students and also consistence in the award amount between semesters with differing full-time credit hour enrollment. There is also more flexibility allowed for students to enroll in internet courses since this is no longer a factor in determining the value of the scholarship.
