Student athletic scholarships are awarded to varsity athletes by their coaches in compliance with the policies and procedures of the University, the Big Ten Conference, the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA), and The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
Athletic awards can be full grant-in-aid that covers the costs of tuition, fees, books, and room and board or partial grant-in-aid for a fixed dollar amount; a specific charge such as tuition and fees; or a percentage of a grant-in-aid.
Each team is assigned a scholarship limit by the NCAA based on the total number of full grant-in-aid awards the sport is allowed to offer during the academic year. The head coach decides how to distribute the funds among the student athletes.
To receive the full value of any aid awarded by the head coach you must sign your scholarship tender by the first day of the semester.
