Full-time, degree-seeking international students may qualify for an International Student Scholarship.

To qualify for this scholarship the student must fill out the application and meet the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.75
  • Gain full admission to a degree program (not ESL)

Application for the scholarship does not guarantee the student will receive the award. The Office of International Programs will review applications and notify applicants who are selected.

Scholarship amounts will vary.

Transfer Students: Must have a minimum 2.75 GPA.

Deadline: August 2, 2021.
