Merit Scholarship

MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THE 2017-18 ACADEMIC YEAR

Institutional merit scholarship is determined by the Admission Office using a matrix system based on Grade Point Average, Test Scores, Test Optional Index and/or transfer credits and GPA (to insure equality in the evaluation process). 

FIRST YEAR STUDENTS                       

Presidential, Trustee, Dean, the William Judson Boone and PEAK Scholarships are based on grade-point average and either test scores or Test Optional selection criteria, at the time of admission. This scholarship award is guaranteed through the student's senior year of undergraduate enrollment provided they meet the scholarship criteria and maintain Satisfactory Academic Standing.

TRANSFER STUDENTS

Credits earned at regionally accredited colleges or universities will be evaluated by the Registrar's Office, and credit will be given in accordance with college policy only after a student has been accepted. In general, credit will be accepted for courses that are comparable to courses in the College curriculum.  Accepted transfer credits and GPA will aid in the merit determination for transfer students. Any discrepancies in final transcripts and those presented at the time of admission will be reviewed by the Vice President for Enrollment Management and could result in changes in financial assistance, and/or violations of the honor code.
