Scholarships and Grants

Award decisions are determined automatically using academic information gathered during the admissions process. A separate award application for merit scholarship consideration is not required.

Incoming Freshmen
Regent University calculates an “Academic Index,” based solely on a combination of high school GPAs and SAT/ACT/CLT test scores, for each applicant with fewer than 15 transferable college credits. Incoming freshman with more than 15 transferable credits from dual enrollment, AP, or IB coursework during high school will also receive an academic index.

Average academic profiles and associated merit scholarships for a previous incoming freshman class were:

Scholarship & Amount High School GPA SAT (Math/Reading) ACT (composite)
Founder’s Scholarship ($9,000) 4.0 1370 31
Trustee’s Scholarship ($8,000) 3.96 1190 25
Honors Scholarship ($6,000) 3.61 1070 22
Achievement Award ($3,000) 3.21 950 19

Listed award amounts are annual totals. Awards are split between fall and spring semesters and are unavailable during the optional summer semester.
