Interstate Scholar’s Program
Eligible Students: Incoming Freshmen from Other States –
Enrolled in Baccalaureate Degree Programs*
The Interstate Scholars Program awards up to ten deserving out-of-state
students the opportunity to reduce their tuition costs. This merit based award
provides the successful recipient $3,000 per year toward tuition and fees for a
maximum of four years. All completed out-of-state applications to the College
are evaluated on academic strength based on high school GPA and SAT/ACT
scores. All awards are offered on a first-come, first served basis. It is important to note that qualified applicants typically exceed available merit awards so early application is encouraged. Students must be enrolled full time and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5.
*For a student entering a 2+2 program (associates degree is required for entrance to the bachelor’s degree program), the award will be made available during the second two years of study as all MSC Associate Degree programs boast a significantly reduced rate of tuition for our out-of-state students. This year our non-resident student associate degree program tuition rate is reduced by approximately $4,500 when compared with non-resident tuition costs for our baccalaureate programs.
