Graduates of Maryland community colleges may now be able to attend Frostburg State University at a significant discount, following the establishment of the FSU Associate Degree Scholars Award.

The award is worth $1,250 per semester and will be awarded for a total of four semesters if the student enrolls full-time and maintains a 3.0 GPA.

Students should still apply for applicable scholarships and grants and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15 of every year to help cover the remaining educational costs. FSU institutional and departmental scholarships, and students should apply online by March 1 each year.
