Saint Vincent College provides numerous financial opportunities to incoming freshmen and transfer students as well as returning undergraduates. These are typically awarded by the Admission Office. Merit-based awards are those in which recipients are selected based primarily on academic merit and specific selection criteria. These are awarded as part of the admission process for the 2014-15 year and are based on full-time enrollment. Saint Vincent scholarships may be retained for eight semesters as long as a minimum 2.0 GPA is met. SAT score is based on Math and Critical Reading Sections only.
For those who do not meet the above requirements, other scholarships and Saint Vincent financial aid awards of up to $14,000 may be available. Visit our Net Price Calculator and Merit Calculator to find out more!
