Freshmen who meet the minimum academic requirements for merit-based scholarship consideration, and are admitted to the University by January 15th, will be provided information on how to apply along with their acceptance letter. Candidates must have a minimum combined SAT score of 1250 or better on the SAT (evidence based reading & writing + math) and a high school GPA of 3.5 or above to be invited. Students who do not have a high school GPA reported can qualify for an invitation if they rank in the top 15% of their graduating class and meet the SAT requirement. Applicants who meet the academic criteria for scholarship consideration are encouraged to apply early in the fall of their senior year.
The University Scholarship Committee reviews all applications submitted by the assigned due date to determine the allocation of awards. Consideration will be based on the strength of students' academic achievements in high school, as well as their involvement in co-curricular activities and accomplishments within the community.
Through various scholarship programs, the PA State System (formerly PASSHE) Foundation supports all 14 PA State System Universities by providing scholarships to their students.
