Scholarship and University Professor's Scholarship
Shawnee State University recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement through a merit based scholarship program. The University offers two levels of academic scholarship - the President's Scholarship and the University Professor's Scholarship.
The President's Scholarship is awarded to new freshman students who have achieved a composite score of 26 or higher on the ACT* (or combined mathematics and critical reading SAT scores of 1170 or higher) and have a high school grade point average* of at least 3.8 (4.0 scale). The President's Scholarship is full in-state tuition (less state grants) and renewable for seven continuous semesters provided the student completes 30 credit hours (during fall and spring semesters) and achieves a 3.25 cumulative grade point average.
The University Professor's Scholarship, for new freshman students, is also based on the student's ACT composite score* (or combined mathematics and critical reading SAT scores) and high school grade point average*. The amounts of this scholarship vary from $500 to one-half the amount of in-state tuition (currently valued at $3438.12). The University Professor's Scholarship is also renewable for seven continuous semesters provided the student completes 28 credit hours (during fall and spring semesters) and achieves a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.
*The application for admission, qualifying ACT/SAT score and grade point average must be submitted to the Office of Admission no later than February 1, 2014.
Please note: Students taking the February ACT test will not have their score available by the February 1st deadline.
For example, a student has an ACT composite of 23 and a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.62. This student would receive the University Professor's Scholarship in the amount of $1,500.
