A college education is the most important investment you will ever make and the benefits from this investment will last you a lifetime.

At Rogers State University we are firmly committed to ensuring that all students are able to attend college, regardless of their financial situation. Our financial aid team awards millions of dollars each year to make sure RSU students are able to succeed in their pursuit of a university degree.

How to Apply for a Scholarship

Your RSU admission application serves as an application for an Academic Tuition Scholarship. Academic scholarships are awarded based on an applicant’s GPA, test scores, and date of admission. Priority consideration will be given to students admitted by March 1. Eligible applicants admitted after March 1 will be placed on a waiting list and awarded as funds become available.

Available Scholarships

Use the following formulas to calculate your scholarship amount:

ACT: (High School GPA x 12.5) + (ACT x 1.38889) = SCORE
SAT: (High School GPA x 12.5) + (SAT x 0.03125) = SCORE
*With no scores: (High School GPA x 21) = SCORE

  • If your score is 88+, you earned a Tier 1 scholarship of $2,500/year for four years.
  • If your score is 82-87, you earned a Tier 2 scholarship of $2,000/year for four years.
  • If your score is 76-81, you earned a Tier 3 scholarship of $1,800/year for four years.
  • If your score is 70-75, you earned a Tier 4 scholarship of $1,500/year for four years.
  • If your score is 63-69, you will earn a Tier 5 scholarship of $1,000/year for four years.

*Note: Students having neither an ACT nor an SAT score cannot qualify for Tier 1 scholarships.
