Scholarships & Financial Aid


The college offers both need- and merit- based scholarships. Roughly 96% of the student body receives some sort of financial aid. Scholarship priority is given to students who haven completed the application process by the suggested deadline for each semester.

All accepted students are automatically considered for scholarship. Merit scholarships are determined through a competitive evaluation of each applicant’s portfolio, transcripts, personal statement and standardized test scores, if applicable.

Other forms of Aid
Additional grants and scholarships are available through local organizations such as clubs, churches, employers and community organizations. Students are encouraged to research private scholarship opportunities in their area.
