How does the free year academic scholarship work?

Academic scholarships are available to all undergraduate students and are based on your incoming GPA, as well as your ongoing academic performance during your time at Multnomah.

Our lowest tier academic scholarship (for admitted students with a GPA < 3.0), is $7,400 per year, renewable each year you’re a student. That means during a four-year undergraduate degree, you would earn a minimum of $29,600 in academic scholarships, equivalent to one year of tuition at the rate at which you first enroll.

The undergraduate tuition rate is $29,568 for the ‘23-24 academic year.


Note: this scholarship does not apply to transfer students and student athletes. Learn more here.

Does that mean you can earn more with better academic performance?

It certainly does! You earn a free year of tuition over four years with our minimum academic scholarship. If your GPA is at or above a 3.0, you will see a greater academic scholarship on your financial aid reward sheet. Our highest tier academic scholarship, available to students with a 4.0 GPA, is $13,000, or more than 40% of your annual tuition.
