Changes in residency status (in-state, Good Neighbor or Regional Student Program) will result in a partial or total loss of scholarship.

No application is necessary; students are automatically evaluated for this award at the time of application.
Scholarship amounts listed are for new students only for the academic year 2022-2023. In future years, amounts may be adjusted downward if tuition decreases, so that the amount of the scholarship award remains consistent with the percentage of tuition met by the student’s most recent award.
