This scholarship does not combine with any other Bryan College Scholarship or Grant. A cash refund will not be given as a result of receiving the Rhea County Scholarship in combination with federal/state grant/scholarship and/or outside scholarship. If the total of the specified types of aid exceeds tuition, room and board (or tuition only for commuters), this scholarship will be lowered in the amount of the overage. This scholarship may be replaced by other types of aid. On campus housing is only available as space permits.

* Pre-Redesigned SAT scores. Beginning March 2016, all students taking the SAT in the United States will take the Redesigned SAT, which is different in design, content, and scoring. Because the new SAT is scored differently and tests a different knowledge base, the two tests cannot be super-scored together.
