Full-time, degree-seeking international students may qualify for an International Student Scholarship. This is a scholarship offered by the Office of International Programs and, if granted, will be applied towards the student's tuition over two semesters. To qualify for this scholarship the student must fill out the application, have a minimum GPA of 2.75 and gain full admissions 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.

Non-resident Scholarship Opportunity

International students that meet regular international admission requirements (not admitted alternatively or on probation) AND live on campus may be eligible for a scholarship waiving 50% of their nonresident tuition. Nonresident tuition is charged in addition to in-state tuition and students are still responsible for paying in-state tuition. This program waives only a portion of the nonresident tuition.

Transfer Students: Must have a minimum 2.75 GPA

Deadline: August 2, 2021
