First-Time Freshman

We offer academic scholarships to first-time freshmen who meet certain criteria. To be considered, you’ll need to:

  1. Submit your ACT/SAT scores
  2. Apply for admission
  3. Be admitted by January 5th of your senior year

Our academic scholarships begin with an ACT score of a 24, and all scholarships require a minimum high school GPA of a 3.0.  Applicants accepted for admission by January 5 may qualify to receive scholarships for 4 years.

If you’ve met the criteria above, you’ll receive an invitation to our scholars banquet. If you’re unable to attend, you’ll need to notify us.

This process is for first-time university applicants only. Transfer students should apply for scholarships once they start school.
