Undergraduate Scholarship

Scholarship Process

All admitted Undergraduate students are automatically reviewed for scholarship eligibility. There is no separate application however, students are required to complete a FAFSA (DACA or International students must complete a Dream Act application or CSS Profile application respectively).

The Scholarship Committee meets every two weeks, and reviews recently admitted applicants. Notifications of scholarship awards are made via email. As students decline their awards, the Scholarship Committee will re-award funds and consider all admitted students. For this reason, students may not learn if they receive a scholarship until several weeks after being admitted.
