Following admission to HSU, students are considered for scholarships based on a combination of the following criteria: academic preparation and performance, standardized testing, co-curricular involvement, enrollment status, and anticipated major. Except where noted, no additional application is required. Admission and financial aid applications may be used for scholarship. Requirements and/or evaluation criteria are subject to change.
Most institutional scholarships are renewable up to eight (8) consecutive long semesters provided satisfactory academic progress is being made, full-time enrollment status is maintained, and renewal grade point minimums are being met. Some specific scholarships are awarded on an annual basis only.
All awards funded by HSU are tuition-specific. Tuition for the Intercollegiate program (ACU, McMurry), Study Abroad beyond one semester and Physical Therapy programs are not covered.
*Based on 24 transferable hours. Transfer students with less than 24 transferable credits will be evaluated under freshman admission and scholarships guidelines. Official college transcripts are required to validate the cumulative GPA and the number of transferrable credit hours.
If the GPA minimum for an Academic Scholarship is not met, the student may receive a scholarship commensurate with her/his current GPA. The original scholarship may be reinstated once the student achieves the GPA minimum. A student may not receive a scholarship of higher value than her/his original award. Scholarships will be evaluated at the end of the spring semester and again at the end of the summer terms.
In addition to scholarship awards made by HSU shown below under Institutional Scholarships, numerous foundations, organizations and individuals also make scholarship awards.
