President's and University Professor's Scholarship

2015-2016 Academic Year

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 (currently valued at $7064.16) which can be applied to direct SSU billable expenses. It is 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 $3532.08). 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.

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.
