MCPHS Advantage Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions

I graduated from an MCPHS full-time degree program in May 2017. Why am I not eligible for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship?

At this time, MCPHS has decided to offer the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship to only its most recent graduates and to set graduation in, or after, December 2017 as the qualifying graduation dates. However, as an MCPHS alumnus, there might be other University scholarships available to you. You should contact the Admission Office regarding other possible scholarship assistance.

I am currently an MCPHS student enrolled in a “dual degree” program and one of the degrees for which I am studying is a master’s program included in the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program. Do I qualify for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship for the master’s program in which I am currently enrolled?

No. In order to be eligible for an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship, you must have graduated from a full-time MCPHS degree program. Only courses required for a master’s program included in the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program that are taken after you have graduated from a full-time MCPHS degree program may be covered by an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship.

I graduated from a full-time MCPHS degree program in May 2018 and would like to enroll in a certificate program. May an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship be applied to a certificate program?

If I enroll in a master’s program included in the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program and leave before I complete the master’s program, may I convert the credits for the courses I have completed to a certificate program and receive the certificate?

No. Credits earned with an MCPHS Advantage Scholarship may only be applied to one of the master’s degrees included in the MCPHS Advantage Scholarship program.
