Scholarship opportunities for Latinx, first generation, or other underrepresented populations.
All students are automatically considered for merit scholarships at the time of admission, up to $26,000 per year. All students are also eligible to be considered for need-based financial aid, including undocumented or DACA students and international students. For students whose parents have engaged in migrant farmwork, we offer unique scholarships through the CAMP program (College Assistance Migrant Program).
Support services for Latinx, first generation, or other underrepresented populations.
All students receive a high level of individualized academic support through our Success Coach model of freshman advising. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion also provides opportunities for students to engage with others coming from a similar background, and supports student organizations such as BSU (Black Student Union), Latinx Student Organization, Monarchs on the Hilltop (supporting undocumented students) and SEU Pride (LGBTQ student organization.)
