Will you cover difference between tuition minus GI Bill and cost of in state "state" school tuition? Or do you want to keep it to in-state residents? N/A.
Do you want to donate additional money to each applicant should the need arise? If a student is reviewed as academically meritorious, they may be eligible for a merit scholarship. Merit scholarship recipients, however, have a profile significantly higher than an average admitted student. The average admitted student profile for the Class of 2017 was a 3.82 GPA and 1284 SAT (Critical Reading and Math).
Processing fees: $75 application fee.
All majors open to Marines? Yes
Recognize AA degree or any college course work: Yes, however if this work was completed post-secondary, we would not review the student as a freshman. The individual could apply as a transfer student, but outside of this program. If, however, the work was done concurrently (dual degree program) with the high school course work, we would recognize it in the admissions process.
Recognize awarding of college credits via alternative means, e.g., DANTES or CLEP: Yes, CLEP.
