Academic Scholarships

Students who have exhibited academic excellence should be rewarded for their achievements. For this reason, LMU has established an academic scholarship program dedicated to recognizing and supporting the continued success of outstanding students.

Academic awards for entering freshmen are awarded on a competitive basis based on high school grade point average, ACT or SAT test scores, class rank, and leadership potential. The amount of the award ranges from $4,000 to full-tuition per year. Academic awards for entering transfer students are based on the cumulative transfer grade point average and the number of hours completed. A limited number of scholarships are awarded to members of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. Transfer Student Awards range from $2,000 to full tuition per year.

All scholarships are renewable for three additional years provided the student maintains a cumulative 2.0 GPA. Academic awards must be applied toward tuition, books, fees, and on-campus room and board expenses.

All federal, state, and local grants are credited to the student’s account first, and any institutional grants or scholarships are applied to the balance of the student’s aid eligibility for the semester. No cash refunds will be made.

All students receiving any institutional aid are expected to take an active part in student life by becoming involved in at least one of the University’s recognized student organizations (for which he/she is not receiving scholarship money) each semester (see Organizations). Recipients are also required to complete 10 hours of campus/community service each semester.
