Our Volunteer Scholarship program recognizes students with an exemplary academic record based on a combination of GPA and test scores.
Incoming first-year students with a minimum 3.8 GPA* who apply for admission for the fall 2020 semester are eligible (Students who apply after the December 15 admission deadline will be fully considered). New test scores to determine eligibility for the Volunteer Scholarship are accepted through December of senior year. You must matriculate the fall semester immediately following your graduation from a US high school and be a US citizen or permanent resident to be considered.
In order to keep the Volunteer Scholarship, you’re required to:
- Maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
- Maintain full-time enrollment throughout each semester
