Alfred State is proud of its commitment to recognize outstanding students by offering numerous scholarships. Since it is the desire of Alfred State to award scholarships to as many students as possible, typically students do not receive more than one scholarship. If a student qualifies for more than one award, the higher-value scholarship will be awarded. Enrollment deposits must be paid by the due date in order to maintain any scholarship awards. When multiple SAT score reports are submitted for scholarship purposes, the exams will be superscored using the highest reading/writing and math scores; ACT exams are not superscored.
The Alfred State Big Blue Residential Assistance Grant is offered to first-time, freshmen students who reside and attend high school outside of New York State and will be living on campus studying full-time. Specific value will be determined based on a student’s financial need as determined by the Student Records and Financial Services Office and funding availability; award is subject to change if any aspect of a student’s financial aid information is updated; preference given to students accepted by May 1; no scholarship application necessary.
