Academic Scholarships for First-Time Freshmen-Freshman Transfers

First-Time Freshman and Freshman Transfer Academic Scholarships are determined by using high school transcripts submitted through the 7th semester and SAT/ACT tests taken by April 1 of senior year.

Freshman Transfer Students are those students who have attempted less than 30 college semester units prior to transfering to William Jessup University. Students who have completed 30 or more college units prior to graduating high school may still be considered first-time freshmen if they have not completed further units after high school graduation.

NOTE: Academic awards are based on transcripts/test scores given at the time of Admission. Students may resubmit additional transcripts and test scores before April 1st in order to have their academic scholarship reevaluated for a maximum $1,000 increase in the yearly value of the award. The above review process is not automatic and must be initiated by the student by April 1 of their Senior year. Academic scholarship decisions, like admission decisions, are contingent upon verification of OFFICIAL transcripts.

Academic Achievement Awards are given to those first time freshmen and freshman transfers who qualify solely under SAT or ACT scores. Amount according to matrix above.

Academic scholarships, excluding William Jessup Scholar award, are renewable with a cumulative WJU GPA of 3.00.

Academic Scholarships for Transfer Students

Academic Scholarships for Transfer Students

Academic Award Amount (per year) Academic GPA*
Transfer Scholar Award I $8,000 3.50+
Transfer Scholar Award II $5,000 3.00 – 3.49

These awards will be granted to all eligible transfer students in the traditional undergraduate program with 24 or more academic transferable semester units. Eligibility is determined at the time of acceptance and is annually renewable by maintaining a cumulative WJU GPA of 3.0.

Transfers with less than 24 academic semester college units completed at the time of application, with a minimum college academic GPA of 3.00, will have their scholarship award determined by a combination of their high school (academic GPA and SAT/ACT) and college records, using the dollar amounts of the transfer awards.

Note* Academic GPA is determined by the Director of Admission at the time of formal acceptance into the traditional undergraduate program at William Jessup University. Eligibility will not be re-evaluated based on subsequent tests or coursework. Eligibility is determined by Academic GPA and number of academic transferable units.

Academic Scholarships for Continuing Students

Students who initially enroll at WJU and do not qualify for an Academic Scholarship can eventually qualify for an academic scholarship with sustained excellent academic achievement. A continuing student who does not already have an Academic Scholarship at WJU can, after a minimum of two semesters of full time coursework at WJU, qualify for an academic scholarship in the amount of $2,000 with a minimum qualifying cumulative GPA of 3.0.

Evaluations to determine eligibility for these scholarships are conducted at the end of the spring semester of each year and are only awarded for the following year. Once awarded, these academic scholarships are renewable as long as the student maintains a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

NOTE: Need-based WJU Grants are susceptible to change if an academic award is earned as a continuing student.

At WJU, we pride ourselves on reviewing the entirety of your personal financial situation, and then making a final decision. You are NOT simply the result of a formulaic bunch of numbers. You are a unique individual, created by our Lord, and will be treated as such!

Important Considerations: The Net Price Calculator...

IS NOT For Everyone Currently, the NPC is designed for US Citizens or Permanent Residents who are planning on attending college in a year or two. The calculator may not fully capture your unique situation, so we always recommend contacting the financial aid department for more personalized information.
IS NOT Totally Inclusive of All WJU Aid Programs There are a few things that just can’t be perfectly incorporated on an estimator – most notably our need-based WJU Grant and the CA State Grant. The calculator also cannot account for performance-based scholarships such as Athletics, Music, and Competitive Department Scholarships.
IS Confidential and Anonymous You may choose to send your results to a personal email if you would like to save the results for later viewing.
IS a “What If” Tool It is designed for you to run it multiple times to see “what might happen if…”
IS NOT Perfectly Accurate It is only as good as the data you enter. If your data is incorrect, the estimate will also be incorrect – either too high or too low.
IS Educational You should never rule out a school simply because of ‘sticker price’, or even by the results of the NPC. Using a school’s calculator is another tool to find out more about a school in which you are interested. Please do not stop considering any school because of price! Cost is certainly a factor — but it should never be the only factor.
IS NOT a Guarantee of Financial Aid This will come from the WJU Financial Aid Office after you apply and are accepted to WJU.
IS NOT an Application of Admission to WJU or a Financial Aid Application Apply to WJU or Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
IS NOT an Accurate Payment Estimator The NPC starts with something called a ‘Cost of Attendance’ – or COA. This includes the sticker price (typically tuition, room, board and mandatory fees) BUT it also includes standard estimates for other expenses you might incur throughout the year – such as travel, personal items, books, and even living costs (like pizza, movies and laundry!).Remember…these are just estimates! What you will pay directly to WJU will most likely be substantially less than the COA.
IS NOT Static Information Your info may change from semester to semester; federal and state laws certainly change on a whim; and WJU aid programs are subject to change/modification from time to time.

Keeping Your Aid

Each scholarship has its own requirements that you must be aware of and complete in order to maintain eligibility. In addition to these requirements, all students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Requirements of undergraduate SAP include that you achieve a 2.00 GPA and complete at least 66.67% of your courses.

Actions:

Continue to Next Step

Renewing Your Aid

Most types of financial aid are renewable yearly, but many require renewed applications or documentation. It is always recommended that you complete a FAFSA as early as possible each year. Unless you plan to waive the FAFSA each year, the Financial Aid Office will not renew your aid until a FAFSA has been completed. Make sure to keep an eye on your student portal document tracking page so that you never miss a deadline.

Actions:

  • Watch the student portal document tracking page for deadlines.

Finding Additional Aid
