Scholarships and Financial Aid at Vancouver Campus

Student Scholarships

Scholarship consideration will be given to all undergraduate applicants, including freshmen and transfer students, who indicate on their application form to the Vancouver Campus that they would like their application to be considered by the scholarship committee.

Generous scholarships — ranging from $2,700 to $13,500 USD per academic year — will be competitively awarded to academically talented applicants from around the world. Scholarships may be awarded to students who have the equivalent of a 3.00 or higher secondary school grade point average and a TOEFL score of at least 550. Students who submit scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) may be eligible for higher scholarships. All scholarships are renewable annually, for the life of a student’s program, based on continued academic performance (maintaining a 3.00 GPA or higher).

NOTE: Test scores for English proficiency are not required of students from Canada, Bermuda, the Bahamas, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, applicants who have previously attended a high school, college or university in Canada or the United States for more than two years and have earned passing grades in English courses may be exempt from an English proficiency examination.

NB: Scholarships are only eligible to undergraduate students.
