Funding For First-Time College Students

Academic Scholarships for Freshmen

The TU Office of Admission is proud to award academic scholarships to students who have excelled in the classroom as high school students. Scholarship awards are typically based on a student’s grade point average, high school curriculum, and academic accomplishments.

Due to limited ACT and SAT testing opportunities during the COVID-19 global pandemic, freshmen applicants for the spring 2021 and fall 2021 entry terms are not required to submit an official ACT or SAT test score for admission. Submission of an official score is optional. Verified test scores will be superscored if submitted. ACT/SAT scores will be evaluated in scholarship consideration if submitted, but will not impact the scholarship award negatively.

Applicants are automatically considered for these above-listed scholarships during the application for admission review process based on eligibility. As such, there is no separate application for TU’s academic scholarships with the exception of the Presidential Scholarship.

Presidential Scholarship recipients are awarded full tuition for 8 semesters. Eligible students must have a 4.0 grade point average and must submit a separate application and resume when applying for the Presidential Scholarship. For more information, visit the Presidential Scholarship website.

The University of Tulsa also offers need-based grants. Submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for consideration. Information can be found on TU’s Office of Financial Aid page.
