SAT/ACT Awards

If you take the SAT and score 1100 or above, or the ACT and score 22 or above, you will want to submit your test score to earn an additional $1,000 to $3,000 depending on your score. The SAT/ACT award of $1,000-$3,000 is in addition to your Academic Scholarship (Heritage, Academic Excellence, or Presidential).

Admissions Review Process

Holistic Review Process

While the academic scholarships we award are based on core academic GPA, the TLU Office of Admissions draws upon a holistic review process when reviewing and making admissions decisions. The holistic review allows us to look beyond grades and test scores to get a sense of what the applicant is like as a person and what they would contribute to the TLU community.

Scholarship Requirements

Students must be accepted at TLU in order to be considered for a scholarship and must enroll full-time in order to receive and renew the award. Grant and scholarship aid (federal, state and external) when combined with TLU awards may not exceed the cost of attendance for the year which you are applying. Academic, performance and participation awards in combination, where applicable, may not exceed the cost of full-time tuition for the year which you are applying for aid.

A range of academic scholarships are awarded based on high school academic performance. Scholarships are renewable for up to an additional three years provided the student maintains a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA at TLU. These scholarships are awarded based on full-time, undergraduate enrollment.
