Ursuline College offers a variety of scholarships based on academic performance to first-year students coming directly from high school.
Scholarships are awarded based on application for admission to the College. No separate application is required. Students must have clear admission to Ursuline College prior to August 1 for consideration. Scholarship amounts are based on GPA and test scores, if submitted, at the point of admission. Test-optional applicants are reviewed on an individual basis for scholarships. Students are awarded one of the scholarships listed below based on the combination of their GPA and test scores as reviewed at the point of admission. High school GPA is based on a weighted 4.0 scale; other grading scales will be converted to a 4.0.
All traditional student scholarships are renewable if the student is full-time and maintains a 2.0 college GPA. Part-time students and students with previous bachelor’s degrees are not eligible.
