Yes. You can fill in your high school portfolio retroactively with achievements going back to the start of 9th grade, and will be eligible to earn scholarships as if you had been using RaiseMe since 9th grade. The more complete your portfolio is, the more opportunities you have to earn micro-scholarships. Remember, that MidAmerica Nazarene University micro-scholarships are locked in and cannot be changed after November 15th of your senior year.

You should add achievements as frequently as you can throughout high school. Adding achievements to your portfolio increases your eligibility for locking in scholarships from MidAmerica Nazarene University.

You should add all of your courses from grades 9 through 12 in order for MidAmerica Nazarene University to award you the correct amount in scholarships.

The RaiseMe scholarship amount just represents the guaranteed minimum total of scholarship or grant aid from MNU. It could be you’re actually eligible for larger amounts of money in scholarships or grants based on your FAFSA and other information. Your financial aid package will always at least include the minimum amount you locked in on RaiseMe, but if you’re eligible for additional grants and scholarships, it could include much more.
