First-year applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships based on academic performance and their potential to become active members of our community. All aspects of a student’s application are considered including extra-curricular activities, but limited funding and a large number of applications make our scholarship awards highly competitive. A recommended GPA of 3.5 or higher is encouraged to be eligible for consideration, along with a rigorous HS course schedule. For the Fall 2021 admission cycle, Ramapo College will be test-optional, SAT and ACT scores will not be required to be considered for scholarship awards. Test scores will be required to be submitted for Nursing and articulation programs.Scholarship awards are disbursed in various amounts over four years provided that students maintain the required number of credits, grade point average, and good social standing. Unfortunately, due to an increase in applications and limited funding, the College may be unable to offer all students with the above criteria a merit-based scholarship.
To be considered for a merit-based scholarship, students must submit their application by the priority deadline, December 15, 2020, and all required credentials must be received no later than January 3, 2021. No separate application is necessary. An interview may be required upon review of credentials.
