Academic scholarships are based upon the applicant's academic performance, not the family's income. TCU recognizes and rewards outstanding scholarly achievement through academic merit scholarships. These awards are competitive and are based on a number of objective and subjective criteria such as class rank, strength of curriculum, counselor and teacher recommendations, standardized test scores, essay, and co-curricular activities.


The Application for Undergraduate Admission also serves as the Application for Academic Scholarships. The application and supporting documents must be postmarked no later than February 15 for scholarship consideration.


The Scholarship Committee carefully reviews the Applications for Undergraduate Admission to determine the scholarship winners. Freshman scholarship recipients will be notified by March 15 of their award. Renewal is based on the successful completion of at least 24 hours in the academic year (fall and spring semesters). A 3.0 TCU cumulative GPA is required at the conclusion of the freshman year. Thereafter, renewal requires a 3.25 cumulative GPA at the end of each spring semester.
