Academic Scholarships for First-Time Freshmen 2011/2012

Academic scholarships are awarded to first-time full-time students based on a calculation of the student’s ACT composite score and high school grade point average (GPA). Academic scholarships range from $1,000 to $12,500 and may be renewed. Qualifying ACT scores must be submitted by June 1, though the University will recognize scores submitted by students who apply for admission after June 1 with an ACT score received earlier than June 1.
