Scholarships for Florida Freshmen
Our Scholarship Guarantee
You will receive scholarship funding to attend New College if:
• All of your required admission materials are on file by April 15, 2015.
All required application materials (including official transcripts, exam scores, and the recommendation) must be received by the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid on or before the deadline, EST.
Mail postmarked by the appropriate date will meet the deadline so long as the mail is received by 5:00 PM EST, the following business day.
Scholarship funding amounts are tied to residency for tuition purposes. (For example, a student who is a Florida resident for tuition purposes will not be eligible for assignment of the Presidential Scholarship for out-of-state students.) For more info on tuition and residency, please contact your admissions counselor.
We award these scholarships by calculating your SAT Critical Reading and Math scores, as well as your grades at the time of admission. (If you took the ACT, use the conversion chart on the left to convert your score).
Use the calculator below to estimate your Institutional Rating and determine the scholarship award amount that may be available to you.
