6. Entitlement and Competitive Awards
In addition to grants, students can also be approved for entitlement awards based on grade point average, family income, and assets. First-time freshmen who might not receive the tuition grant may qualify for a supplemental grant that can be used for books, supplies, transportation, and living expenses. Students who do not qualify for the entitlement awards could qualify for competitive scholarships based on a low income, GPA, and program of study if working towards a high demand career.
