Merit Award Policy

Students who apply for admissions fall quarter will automatically be considered for merit-based scholarships. These scholarships are awarded against the cost of tuition and will be part of the student's financial aid award package. 

Merit awards are based on a student’s historic academic performance. This is determined by the official transcripts we receive at the time the student applies for admission. 

Students will be informed of their award through the email, and the Student Admissions Portal

Students must accept their award through the merit award acceptance form that can be found in the Student Admissions Portal.
