Colorado Mesa University offers small class sizes, state-of-the-art facilities, and expert faculty who take an interest in your success. A CMU education is a great value, and we stand by our commitment to keep higher education affordable. Last year, we awarded more than $73 million in financial aid and scholarships to 75% of the student body. CMU's Presidential Scholarship is valued at $3,500 per academic year. Initial eligibility requirements: Applicants must be incoming freshmen and satisfy two of the three following criteria: 3.5 GPA, top 15% of graduating class, or a 25 ACT / 1210 combined SAT. The scholarship can be renewed for a maximum of 120 credit hours as long as the student maintains a 3.25 cumulative GPA and full-time status (12 Credit Hours/Semester) at CMU. Students applying for admission to Colorado Mesa University will automatically be considered for merit scholarships; completing an additional application is not required.
