You may also be considered for some scholarships based on your Conditional Application, without further action needed on your part.

Please note: The scholarship amount awarded may vary from the advertised amount. Payout of all awards is subject to availability of funds. Due to NCAA Div. III regulations, athletics cannot be considered in the awarding of scholarships. Commenting on athletic involvement on scholarship applications or references from coaches is prohibited.
