COD Scholarship recipients must write a mandatory Donor Thank You Card and attend a mandatory Donor Reception in the Spring to receive their scholarship award.
COD Foundation Scholarships will be disbursed electronically thru Bank Mobile for all currently enrolled students at COD. Transfer students awarded a COD Foundation scholarship, will need to contact the Financial Aid Office and forward a copy of their unofficial transcript from the college they are currently enrolled in before their check can be mailed to their institution.
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
If you fail to meet the terms/conditions of your scholarship, it may be revised or cancelled.
Your financial aid award letter may be revised as a result of receiving a scholarship award. You can check your financial aid award letter online via Web Advisor to determine if any adjustments have been made.
