Future Students:  Freshmen Scholarships


The scholarships below are available to first-time, full-time freshmen for the 2016-2017 academic year. These scholarships are awarded to undergraduate full time students accepted to Schreiner University. A separate scholarship application is not required. Merit scholarships are agreements between the student and Schreiner University, are renewable for 4 years consecutively, and are tuition specific.   

NOTE: Either SAT or ACT scores are accepted. The admission staff recalculate all high school GPA’s from official transcripts in order to standardize all GPA’s to a 4.0 scale.

Freshmen Merit Scholarships
At Schreiner University, we believe you should be awarded for your hard work in high school. When you are accepted as a freshmen, your Admission Counselor will determine what level of merit scholarship you have earned based on your high school GPA and your composite ACT score or your Critical Reading & Math SAT scores (we even super score all of your SAT exams to base decisions on your highest individual scores). And the best part is that we will increase your merit scholarship if your GPA and/or test scores increase to the next level during your senior year of high school. Click below to find out your potential merit scholarship!

(Other groups, such as Greystone, Veterans, Vocational Nurses, Graduates, or on-line BSN students, should review the aid offered for their own program of study.  See main listings in left menu.)
