» Freshmen and Transfer Student Scholarships:
Many students receive scholarships and awards from their local communities and are encouraged to research private scholarships on the web.
Although the college does not have a substantial merit-based program, it does participate on a limited basis with school districts that may have local "Dollars for Scholars" chapters which is coordinated with your high school guidance departments.
Please note that the Financial Aid Office only awards Federal and State regulated grant, work and loan programs based upon the FAFSA.
Upon acceptance to the college, any limited available merit awards would be offered by the Admissions Office at that time. There is no separate application.
