Traditional undergraduate students at Seton Hill University are considered for both financial need-based aid and merit-based aid. Need-based financial aid is awarded based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and includes grants, some scholarships, loans and work-study employment. Merit-based aid, including a wide variety of scholarships, is awarded to incoming students on the basis of academic excellence, demonstrated achievement in extra-curricular activities or special talents. The majority of our competitive financial aid packages combine need and merit-based aid.

Scholarships that are available for arts majors include:

  • Division of Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships - renewable awards that vary from $1000 to full-tuition annually. To apply for a division scholarship, accepted students must submit a portfolio for review by February 24, 2015. (Having a portfolio reviewed for a scholarship also satisfies the portfolio review requirement for admission to the Art Program.)
