Many students receive merit-based funding. There isn't any additional paperwork to fill out. The admissions committee will read a student's entire file and grant merit-based financial awards based on that information.

Health Insurance

Students may waive health insurance if they are covered by a comparable health insurance plan. Information can be found on the Student Health Insurance page of the Insurance Office website.
