Scholarship Information

In order for a first-time freshman to apply for scholarships, you only need to complete two easy steps by January 5th:

  1. Submit your ACT scores
  2. Apply for admission

Once we have received the above items, you will be sent a letter stating your scholarship folder is complete. Your high school transcript will be automatically downloaded from the Louisiana Board of Regents Student Transcript System (STS) once you have applied.

Please note that our academic scholarships begin at an ACT score of a 24, and all scholarships require a minimum high school GPA of a 3.0.

All scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis, using a scholarship formula to provide a scholarship ranking. Based on funding, scholarships are then awarded depending on the formula value derived from a student’s scholarship folder.

Students with a composite score of 30 or higher on the ACT with a minimum 3.0 high school gpa (as reported by STS) are automatically awarded the President’s Scholarship.

For more information, please contact us via email or toll free at 1-877-NICHOLLS.

This process is for first-time university applicants only.
