Academic Scholarships and Grants

Cabrini University offers academic merit awards to eligible incoming students based on GPA (grade point average) and SAT or ACT scores (if submitted).

For those students applying test-optional, merit awards will be based on GPA. 

All applicants to Cabrini are considered. Students must be registered as full-time (12 or more credits per semester) and maintain satisfactory academic success to continue to be eligible.

The University reserves the right to review, adjust, or cancel awards at any time because of changes in a student’s academic status, or student’s code-of-conduct violations.

Awards may be affected if a student changes on-campus residency or number of credits taken per semester (less than 12 credits per semester).

If federal or state allocation of financial aid funds to Cabrini are adjusted at any time, Cabrini reserves the right to adjust financial aid awards as necessary. 

  • All financial aid awards are contingent on availability of funds
  • These awards are considered “gift aid” and do not need to be repaid by the student
