Once we have those items, we will determine if an acceptance will be issued. Our office will request this information, but to expediate the process, it is helpful when the student takes the initiative to have the needed items in advance.

What ACT/SAT and GPA do I need to qualify for scholarships?
Lindsey Wilson College begins awarding achievement scholarships at a 3.0 GPA and a 18 ACT. We have found the GPA is a greater indicator of a student's capability to succeed in college than the ACT score alone. Obivously, students who exhibit both strong ACT/SAT scores and GPA will qualify for an increase in money as the scores increase.

We do not have a separate scholarship application. We work very diligently to get to know our students. Our application provides enough information to determine the scholarships to award.
