Undergraduate Scholarships

The College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) offers several tuition scholarships based on academic achievement. Incoming students are automatically considered for awards. No additional application is required to be considered for CECS scholarships.

  • All scholarships consider earned grades; ACT scores are also considered for freshmen scholarships.
  • Scholarship recipients need to enroll full time in an approved CECS degree program.
  • Some awards are renewable for a second year for students who maintain a minimum 2.75 grade point average and continue to enroll in an approved CECS degree program.
