Our Scholarship Guarantee

You will receive scholarship funding to attend New College if:
  • All of your required admission materials are on file by May 15, 2022.
  • You are admitted to New College for Fall 2022.
  • You are a U.S. Citizen, U.S. Permanent Resident Alien, or eligible noncitizen.

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.

If students qualify for multiple awards, we will choose them for one.
