Saint Leo University is committed to making an excellent private
education affordable. To that end, the institution offers a variety
of non-need-based awards to help students and their families reach
their educational goals.
Institutional aid is awarded automatically based on eligibility
requirements and does not require a separate application. However,
all domestic students must complete the FAFSA in order to be
considered for these awards.
Scholarships do not require repayment or a work obligation.
Saint Leo University Merit Scholarship
If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student, and are
enrolled as a full time undergraduate at the University Campus, you
are considered for a Saint Leo University Merit Scholarship, which
is based on your academic history and accomplishments. Financial
need is not a factor.
The Office of Admission evaluates eligibility and awards funds
based on academic achievement. Award amounts vary, but do not
exceed the cost of tuition. You may renew the award by maintaining
at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and earning 24 credit hours at Saint
Leo during the academic year.
Merit aid for first-time-in-college students ranges from $2,000
to $5,000. Transfer students are eligible for merit aid ranging
from $1,000 to $3,500. These awards are renewable each year
contingent upon satisfactory academic progress.
Saint Leo Phi Theta Kappa

2013-2014 figures) is awarded to transfer students who are
traditional full-time undergraduate day students at University
Campus and who are members of Phi Theta Kappa.
