All merit scholarship offers for the 2013-2014 incoming freshman class have been extended as of April 1, 2013. If you were not offered a merit scholarship as an incoming freshman, please keep in mind that you may be eligible for merit based scholarships awarded through your academic college in future years. You can refer to your specific college of interest for information pertaining to their scholarship opportunities.
To be considered for scholarships based on financial need and other criteria, students should also submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline.
