In addition to the Lycoming Grant program (need-based), Lycoming College offers over $31 million each year in scholarships and grants to academically talented students studying on the Williamsport Campus who are full-time and degree-seeking. First-year students are automatically considered for all academic scholarships — there is no special application. All academic scholarships are automatically renewed in their original amount for the following year provided the student maintains satisfactory academic progress as defined in the College Catalog.
Accepted first-year applicants are automatically considered for merit awards ranging from $18,000 to $34,000 per academic year* based upon the individual assessment of their academic achievement. Academic metrics considered in determining student scholarships include GPA, class rank, and SAT/ACT scores (if submitted). Merit scholarships are renewed annually provided that the student maintains full-time status and makes satisfactory progress. Students receiving Lycoming College scholarships or grants cannot receive total scholarship and grant aid from all sources in excess of tuition and fees (and room and board if a resident student).
