Academic Scholarships

All new students are considered for an academic scholarship as part of the application review process. Scholarships are awarded at the time of acceptance based on a review of high school transcripts, SAT/ACT scores (if considered as part of the application review process) and class rank. Course selection and overall GPA are weighed heavily in the review process.

You do not have to apply for financial aid to be considered for academic scholarships. Academic scholarships are renewable for four years provided you maintain the required cumulative GPA and remain enrolled in a full time undergraduate program. Academic scholarships are only awarded at the time of admission.

Academic scholarships are based on residency status. If your status changes from resident to commuter, your scholarship amount will decrease by $3,500 on average based on the lower cost of attendance.

Regina Scholarship

Regina Scholarships are awarded to the top students in each class based on cumulative GPA. These awards are announced each fall. Additional criteria are available in the undergraduate catalog.

OCHRE Scholarship

OCHRE (Opportunity and Community Helping to Reach Equity) scholarships are an important contributor to the University’s goal to create and foster a community that is diverse, well rounded and inspired to change the world.

Students must apply for first-year admission and identify with a multicultural heritage or be a student who demonstrates a commitment to diversity, inclusion and multiculturalism in their school or community.

Students are also required to show demonstrated financial need by filing the FAFSA form (U.S. citizens and permanent residents). International students should contact the Office of Admissions.
