Increased scholarships and need-based aid

We hope to ease your mind – and your financial burden – by significantly expanding our need-based aid to more students and restructuring our merit-based scholarships. These awards have been restructured and are now based on a percentage of tuition. That means your merit scholarship grows in value if tuition increases.

Freshmen and transfer scholarships have increased by up to 40% since 2019.
