Merit & Need-Based Scholarships

Eligibility for merit aid (based on academic strength) or need-based aid for incoming, full-time undergraduate students is determined after you are accepted to the college.

Merit scholarships are renewed annually provided the student is enrolled full-time and meets all academic standards; no application is required.  Need-based scholarships are renewed annually based on financial need; the FAFSA form must be completed and on file in order to be considered for these awards.  If a student receives one of these awards they are ineligible for a second award in this category.
