Beginning fall 2022, the Dean's List Scholarship will replace the University Merit Scholarship. Each semester, any student who achieves a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher will be placed on the dean's list and considered for a $500 scholarship for the subsequent semester. Previously, the University Merit Scholarship included awards in varying amounts based on cumulative grade point averages. Applications are not necessary. Students participating in one of the university's work study programs will be eligible to receive the Dean’s List Scholarship.
Once grades for the preceding semester are posted and the cumulative GPA is calculated, an award letter from Financial Aid & Scholarships will be sent to each qualifying student informing them of their scholarship. Students are required to complete a short survey and thank you letter that we can provide to our gracious donors.
Once this letter is received by Financial Aid & Scholarships, we will then release the scholarship into the student account.
Please, refer to the terms and conditions for scholarships, to be aware of how a situation can impact your scholarship.
