Scholar Development

This year, the Academic Affairs committee and the Director of Academic and Student Affairs have been allotted $56,000 for scholarships for the student body. Students will be eligible to apply for study abroad and research conference scholarships.

Transcript Voucher Program

The Student Government Association has arranged with the Office of the Registrar to provide students with vouchers that can be redeemed for free official transcripts.  This idea was born out of the rising costs of tuition and fees and aims to reduce the financial burden on each student.  To get a voucher or to learn more about the program, stop by the SGA office.
