International Admissions - Undergraduate Merit Scholarships

First-Year Students/Freshmen

Merit-based scholarship consideration is generally given to first-year/freshmen applicants possessing a high school average of at least 88 and competitive SAT/ACT test scores. For the fall ‘21 incoming class, however, our admissions process will be test optional due to the difficulty in securing a SAT/ACT test date. For fall ’21 our scholarship review process will consist of a holistic review of your application that will take into account the rigor of your high school curriculum, your extracurricular activities (school and community), and any leadership roles that you have held over the course of your high school career.

For scholarship consideration, a complete admissions application must be received by January 1.

*In lieu of an SAT/ACT score, International students must submit one of the following minimum English proficiency scores to be considered for scholarship.

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL): Internet based test score of 90
International English Language Testing System (IELTS): Overall band score of 7.0
PTE Academic (PTE): Overall score of 65
Duolingo English Test (DET): Total score of 115

Transfer Students

Merit based scholarship consideration will be given to full-time international transfer applicants possessing a strong academic record who have earned 30 or more college credits after graduating from high school.  For priority scholarship consideration, a complete application for admission must be received by January 1 for fall admission and October 1 for spring admission.
