Quincy University has announced a new academic scholarship model for freshmen and transfer students that will allow for greater transparency earlier in the application process. Prospective freshman students will be able to calculate an academic award based on their high school GPAs and ACT/SAT scores. Transfer students will estimate their scholarship based on their GPAs and number of transferrable credit hours completed.

“This is an opportunity for families to get an idea of what their net investment will be before they even apply for admission,” said Tom Oliver, vice president for enrollment management. “We are excited to begin sharing this new program with prospective students and their families and believe this will allow them to better understand the value of a Quincy University education.”

The academic scholarships are renewable each year that a student is in good academic standing. Consideration for additional assistance, including need-based grants, will be available once a student has completed the FAFSA and been admitted to the university.

“We are investing in the future of Quincy University by investing in our students,” said Phil Conover, president. “QU has a deep history of providing a quality education and this new scholarship model will show how affordable it can be.”

In addition, students transferring directly from John Wood Community College will be eligible to receive an additional $1,000 scholarship. Phi Theta Kappa students will receive an additional $2,000 scholarship as well.
