When you apply for admission, you'll also be considered for any academic scholarships, including transfer scholarships, for which you are eligible. Scholarships in the visual and performing arts, service and leadership, and writing require auditions, portfolios, or other submissions that are due at the same time as your application for admission. When you receive an offer of admission, you’ll also learn about any scholarships that have been awarded to you. More information about scholarships and eligibility requirements is available on our scholarship page.
