Is this wording normal?


Recommended Posts

My acceptance letter included the following scholarship information


"We are pleased to inform you that you have been recommended for a tuition scholarship in the amount of $16,128 to be used in the 2013 - 2014 academic year. The terms and conditions of this award, and any additional financial assistance will be sent to you via email from the Office of Financial Aid."


The "recommended" bit is throwing me. Is that normal phrasing? My guess is that they just say that as protection so that I'm not awarded if I get straight c's from here till graduation. However, the scholarship will make or break my attending the school so I don't want to accept their offer of admission if "recommended" means I may or may not receive it.

I assume it's similar to when you're "recommended" for admission by the department and the graduate school has to formally accept you. If you're relying on the scholarship, then I'd probably wait to get something official from the financial aid office.
