Academic Excellence Scholarship
An award of $2000 per semester for up to eight semesters or until the completion of an undergraduate degree, whichever comes first.
Graduating senior who has a 24 ACT composite (or equivalent SAT) and 3.25 cumulative high school GPA.
All freshman academic scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. The application for undergraduate admission serves as the scholarship application. There is not a separate scholarship application to complete; however, an early admit status is required. An early admission file includes an application for undergraduate admission, current high school transcript with class rank and qualifying GPA, qualifying ACT or SAT exam scores, and immunization records documenting two MMR vaccinations.
The application for undergraduate admission and all supporting documentation must be on file before November 15, to receive priority scholarship consideration. Applicants who receive an early admission status after the November 15 priority deadline, and before the final scholarship deadline of February 15, will be considered for remaining awards.
