Eligible Standard College Costs

The CES program supplements a student’s post-secondary costs by helping to pay for STANDARD full-time tuition, fees, room & board costs not covered by gift aid (grants & scholarships) at accredited U.S. schools (online degrees not supported). The key concepts are “supplements” and “standard.” The CES program complements your best efforts to qualify for as much federal, state, & college gift aid as possible through your hard work, financial need, academic efforts, athletic talents, and timely submission of admissions and financial aid forms.

STANDARD cost categories are defined as follows:

  • Tuition – [12 – 18 undergraduate credits leading towards one degree at a U.S. school]
  • Fees* – [student activities fee, health center fee, residence hall association fee, etc.]
  • Room** – [2-person (double) “dorm” room]
  • Board – [15 – 19 meal plan]

*MHS does not pay extra fees associated with taking elective courses (diving, photography, music instruction, etc) when other elective courses are available where no extra fee is charged. Students may apply for a one-time exception (one class) to this rule on a case-by-case basis by contacting the CES Office.

**Students choosing single rooms, suites, apartment style housing, etc. are required to pay the cost difference for such housing type upgrades. Contact the CES Office before committing to live in a certain type of room to be sure it is one that MHS will support with CES funding.

What CES Does NOT Cover

The CES program does not pay for expenses including, but not limited to: online degrees, post-bachelor degrees, books, supplies, transportation, off-campus security deposits, advance rent payments, admissions deposits, computer software, membership fees (includes fraternities/sororities), parking fees/fines, housing damage fees, late fees, field trips, phone/internet charges, conferences, etc.

The CES program will help to finance up to ONE undergraduate major and ONE minor. Students pursuing multiple degrees or minors must finance those efforts without CES assistance. The only exception would be students with an associate’s degree pursuing a directly related bachelor’s degree may be eligible for CES assistance if enough credits transfer towards the bachelor’s degree. For students pursuing a combined bachelor’s/master’s degree, CES funds may be used to support only the undergraduate years of such programs.
