Merit-based scholarships are awarded only during the fall semester and cover in-state costs only. Some of these awards are four-year scholarships, renewable for up to three consecutive years provided the appropriate GPA is maintained. Students who apply by the scholarship application deadline will be notified by the beginning of April if they are to receive a scholarship offer. Each fall, all outstanding freshman applicants as well as a limited number of Virginia community college transfer student applicants who have earned a minimum of 45 semester credit hours are considered for scholarship awards.
