General and competitive scholarships for freshmen are available to students attending Southern Miss the fall semester immediately following high school graduation. To be considered for any of these scholarships, you must submit:
- an application for admission
- $40 application fee
- ACT or SAT scores
- a high school transcript
Standardized test scores: Only standardized test scores earned through December 2015 (ACT and SAT) will be considered for scholarship-awarding purposes and Honors College admission and evaluation. The written portion of the ACT and SAT are not considered.
Core GPA: Core GPA is calculated using the student's grades earned in coursework that is part of the College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC). Core GPA is calculated on a four-point scale; thus, weighted grades earned in AP, advanced or honors classes are not calculated into core GPA. (Consideration is given to applicants attempting AP, advanced or honors coursework, but primary emphasis is on core GPA.)
Who can be considered: Freshman scholarships and Honors College admission are available to students attending Southern Miss the fall semester immediately following high school graduation.
