department forms picture

Student Tuition Payment Form is also located at the bottom of this page.

This page is not for students, but UNM Departments needing to make Departmental Scholarship Awards or Student Tuition Payments.

**Revised 23-Apr-08.  Completed forms must be submitted to General Accounting and not the Controllers Office for signatures.

Policies and Procedures for Departmental Award Form

The forms can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

Also below is the Standard Scholarship Application that UNM Departments can download and modify to use for their own scholarship programs.

All student scholarship assistance must be initiated on either "Departmental Award Form," or if foreign students, on "International Student Departmental Award Form".  Financial assistance information will be entered into the Banner system by the Scholarship Office and paid directly to a student's account.  All awards will be applied to balances due before being issued to the student.  Please allow sufficient time (5-7 working days during non-peak times/10-14 business days prior to enrollment cancellation dates) for processing. 

The form is available on-line at the bottom of this page.  It can be saved to your hard drive, completed using MS Excel (it is in a form format for easy use) and then submitted via workflow. Forms submitted for approval and processing must contain electronic signatures using their NetId. Processing offices (Banking, Tax and Investments) may wish to maintain a copy of the form as it is processed.  It is highly recommended that the originating department retain a copy.

Completed departmental award forms can be submitted online to the scholarship office.

Scholarships are classified as either "restricted" or "unrestricted."

Restricted Scholarships

are gifts in which the donor submits specific criteria for the award of the scholarship. On gifts such as this, coordinated by the UNM Foundation, the Foundation is responsible for notifying the college and/or department of the donor restrictions.

Unrestricted Scholarships

are gifts for which the donor places no restrictions, either explicitly or by omission, other than designating it for use by a specific college or department. For these scholarships, the college/department is responsible for developing, documenting and retaining the criteria. For both restricted and unrestricted gifts, the awarding college or department is responsible for ensuring award recipients meet the criteria at the time of the award. All of the information on the award criteria, selection process, award recipient, and any other pertinent award information are to be retained by the department/college for audit purposes. The originating department will certify by signature that the award criteria have been met and funds are available.
