The following scholarships are awarded to qualified applicants upon review of the student’s application for admission. Each student is unique, therefore each student is individually reviewed for merit scholarships. The guidelines below provide general parameters for merit scholarship consideration. Each student is eligible for only one merit scholarship. A student eligible for tuition remission employee benefits who also qualifies for a merit scholarship will receive an adjusted amount of his/her merit award.

Merit Scholarships
Name Amount % of Tuition&Fees Criteria
Presidential $10,000 53% 3.7 GPA and 1160 SAT or 26 ACT
Founders $9,000 48% 3.5 GPA and 1090 SAT or 24 ACT
Deans $8,000 43% 3.0 GPA and 990 SAT or 21 ACT
Achievement Award $4,000 21% 3.0 GPA or 990 SAT or 21 ACT

Note: SAT scores are superscored. A superscore is obtained by combining the best critical reading or writing score with the best math score, even if they come from different test dates.

Scholarships can be applied to tuition only.
