Non-Resident Scholarships

Who are non-residents?

Non-residents are students who are NOT residents of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, or Texas. If they meet regular admission requirements (not admitted alternatively or on probation) they may be eligible for a scholarship waiving 50% of their non-resident tuition. If you have a parent or grandparent who have graduated from NSU there is also a Legacy award option. See below for details based on your student type. If you are a resident of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, or Texas, please visit the Quad State Scholarship page for more information. 

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming freshmen that live on campus and have a minimum 3.0 unweighted GPA and a 25 composite ACT score may be eligible for a scholarship waiving 50% of their non-resident tuition. If you are a legacy student whose parent, grandparent, or sibling earned a degree (bachelors or masters degree) from NSU, you will not be required to live on campus* in order to receive the scholarship.
