Academic Scholarship Index

The Admissions Office has many scholarships for which you may be eligible. Students who apply to USU will automatically be considered for academic scholarships based on the scholarship index. These are USU system-wide awards and are portable across all USU campuses.

This is the point where excellent grades and test scores help you save on tuition. Using a combination of your GPA and ACT/SAT review the Scholarship Index to determine if you are eligible for an academic scholarship.

Comprehensive Scholarship Review (CSR)

Incoming freshmen who are unable to take the ACT/SAT may request a personal comprehensive scholarship review for academic scholarship awarding. The review will consider benchmarks such as grade point average (GPA), high school course rigor, and other criteria. The priority deadline to apply for CSR is December 1, 2022.
