In a continuing effort
to help families cover the cost of college education, Pitt-Bradford has increased the amount of merit aid some in-state and
transfer students will receive.
The awards are provided to students
at the time of their admission based on SAT and ACT scores, high school grades and
whether or not they plan to live on campus. These awards are independent of
whether they may qualify for additional, need-based aid.
In Fall 2014, full-time freshmen who
are Pennsylvania residents and plan to live on campus and who meet the academic
criteria will receive an award of $6,000 per year, up $500 from the current academic
year. If they continue to meet academic criteria and live on campus for four
years, they can receive a total of $24,000.
Students transferring from the
University of Pittsburgh at Titusville who meet the criteria and plan to live
on campus will also have their award increased from $5,500 to $6,000 per year. Other
transfer students from two-year colleges who are in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor
Society will also have $500 added to their merit award.
scholarships is determined by the offices of admissions and financial aid, but
general awards are as follows:
New full-time Pennsylvania freshmen
with an SAT of 930 or higher (math and critical reading only) or ACT of 20 or
higher, and a high school GPA of at least 2.5 and living on campus can receive
$6,000 per year for four years, and commuter students can receive $2,000 per
year for four years. New full-time out-of-state freshmen meeting the same
criteria and living on campus can receive $11,500 per year for four years,
off-setting the higher out-of-state tuition.
New out-of-state transfer students who
live on campus may receive up to $9,500 per year for four years, while new
out-of-state freshmen commuters can receive $8,000 per year for four years.
