Apply for admission by the Dec. 1 priority date for full academic merit scholarship consideration, and please make sure you’re aware of the general freshman scholarship renewal requirements that apply to all renewable awards.
Please note that meeting the eligibility requirements for a scholarship does not guarantee an award, as all award amounts and criteria are pending availability of funds and are subject to change.
