The Diversity Scholarship is a variable award depending upon funds available. It will be awarded for a specific dollar amount up to tuition.
Complete an application. You may include a list of extra-curricular activities, honors, awards, offices held, and a summary of work experience. Selection is based on class rank, GPA, school and community activities, evidence of leadership, character, and financial need. Official academic transcripts must be sent to the Admissions Office. Scholarships are awarded upon transcript evaluation and verification of the scholarship criteria and selection.
Transfer students are eligible for scholarship renewal up to four consecutive semesters. Freshmen scholarships are renewable up to eight consecutive semesters. For renewal, students must enroll in and complete at least 12 credit hours per semester with a 2.5 GPA the first semester of the award and a 3.0 semester GPA each consecutive semester thereafter.
Academic scholarships may not be combined. Students who qualify for multiple academic institutional scholarships will be awarded the highest value academic scholarship. Diversity scholarships may be combined with Patron/Foundation Scholarships or performance awards, not to exceed tuition and residence hall costs.
Please note: Diversity scholarships may be replaced with Patron/Foundation Scholarships of equal or greater value.
