The TLU Promise

We believe a small, private college education should be affordable for all students who want a personal experience.


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 and SAT/ACT scores. 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.

TLU Tuition Is Comparable To State Universities

At TLU, the typical admitted student has a core GPA of 3.60 and a SAT score of 1100 or ACT of 22. This student would be eligible for $20,000 a year:

Over 95% of our students receive scholarships or need-based financial aid such as federal, state, and institutional grants, federal work-study, and federal loans. Don't assume you won't qualify for need-based financial aid. Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, available at, and enter the TLU code, 003641 to apply to TLU.

Academic Scholarships

NOTE: Core academic GPA includes your grades in academic courses such as English, math, science, social studies, and foreign language.

Holistic Review Process

While the academic scholarships we award are based on GPA and test scores, 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.
