For scholarship consideration, the College recommends that all required admission materials (admission application, high school transcript(s), letter(s) of recommendation and personal essay) be received by the Office of Admission on or before March 15 for fall entering students and Jan. 1 for spring entering students. It is also highly recommended that you submit any of the relevant optional items (optional writing sample, resume/activities and SAT/ACT test results) that you wish to be considered as part of your application review. These items should be submitted before these same deadlines.

Top-tier scholarships begin at $17,000 per year.
