To apply, a student must complete the admission application, the admission interview, and be admitted to the College. The Financial Aid Committee will consider performance indicators including the student's high school GPA, strength of their high school curriculum, standardized test scores, writing skills, and personal interview in determining the student's Academic Scholarship.
A student may qualify for more than one scholarship from among academic, merit, endowed, and need-based. Qualification is not a guarantee that multiple scholarships will be awarded. The number and amount of awards is based on available funding each year. The College seeks to steward the resources made available each year to assist as many students as possible.
Annual Award: Up to $14,000.
