Undergraduate Scholarships and Financial Aid


Academic Awards

Scholarships are based on a holistic review of student academic record, in combination with your standardized test scores, rank in class, overall academic rigor of your curriculum and overall potential to succeed. Academic merit scholarships award guidelines are listed below:


  • $3,000 to $30,500 


  • $4,500 to $15,000
  • Phi Theta Kappa member: $3,500 in addition to your transfer scholarship

*Transfer scholarships are only available if you have not received any prior discounts. Transfer scholarships are based on the university GPA for students who have more than 12 credits. If you have been to several universities within a three-year period, we will calculate your GPA from all universities attended. If you are currently at a university and have been there for three or more years, we will only use that GPA and not prior universities if you have accumulated more than 12 credits.

Needs Based

Financial Aid Students are strongly encouraged to file the Free Application For Federal Student Aid  (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for additional need-based aid.
