The Bulldog Scholarship

What is it?

The Bulldog Scholarship is an out-of-state tuition fee waiver that will subtract approximately 50% of your total tuition costs. This will bring your total academic year's cost of tuition (Fall, Winter, and Spring) from $21,894 to approximately $10,845.* If eligible for this scholarship, you will be considered an in-state student for tuition purposes.
