Merit-based aid (aid awarded according to GPA and test scores) is awarded based off of this application and required admissions materials (ACT/SAT scores, transcripts) at the time of admission to the university. Applications for non-merit aid, such as the Honors Scholarship, Chancellor's Scholarship and Leadership Award must be submitted by February 1. Visit aid for a listing of scholarships and other requirements/deadlines, as well as to access the applications.


Students who wish to enroll must submit a $100 enrollment deposit in order to reserve their spot in the incoming class. Deposits must be submitted to the Office of Admissions before a student registers.
