credits/semester) traditional attendance. We award scholarships
upon acceptance, and they are renewable for three years, or eight

Presidential Scholarship) or 2.5 (all others) minimum cumulative

on need, rather than academic qualifications. Be sure to include

These institutional grants are awarded on a competitive basis
and may reflect academic excellence, as well as demonstrated
financial need. The level of grant assistance depends upon the
quality of the student’s academic record, the amount of financial
need, the availability of funds, and full-time traditional
enrollment. Renewal requires students to continue to
demonstrate financial need, as defined by the FAFSA each year, and
maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better.
