First-Year Freshmen Scholarships are only available to incoming first-year students and are extremely competitive. These scholarships range from $500 per year to the full cost of attendance and can be renewed for an additional three years as long as you maintain the minimum requirements. Out-of-state students who qualify for an academic recruiting scholarship might be offered an amount that covers part or all of the out-of-state tuition differential. You will be automatically evaluated for these scholarships based on the information found in your admissions application, such as your test scores and high school rank. There is no separate scholarship application.
All other University scholarships are awarded to both entering freshmen and upperclassmen. These awards range from $250 to $7,500 and each has special criteria set up by the donor such as a certain state of residency, major or career interest. While the selection process is very competitive, these recipients are impossible to predict because of the unique restrictions. Upperclassmen, however, usually need to have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.80 to be considered.
