SCHOLARSHIPS


In order to be considered for academic scholarships at USC Union, students must first be accepted or readmitted for admissions or currently enrolled at USCU. Scholarship applications are available in the high school guidance office or the USCU Student Affairs Office. In addition to the scholarship criteria, first year college students will be evaluated on high school grade point average, class rank, SAT/ACT scores and rigor of academic program. All other student (continuing, transfer and readmit) scholarships will be evaluated based on college grade point average, cumulative hours earned and scholarship criteria. It is extremely important that all portions of the scholarship application have been completed.

 

The scholarship deadline is February 1. Scholarship applications should arrive in the USCU Financial Aid Office no later than February 1 or be post marked by February 1. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

 

Scholarship recipients will be evaluated and selected by the USCU Financial Affairs Committee. Every applicant will be notified committee results by mail, no later than mid March.
