Susquehanna University Campus Visit Grant
Current high school seniors applying for fall 2015 admission will be awarded a $1,000 campus visit grant when they enroll if they make an official visit to Susquehanna University between March 1 of their sophomore year and May 1 of their senior year.
An official visit is one of the following:
- A campus tour
- An admission interview
- An admission information session
- An overnight stay arranged by the admission office
- Attending a Fall Open House
- Attending Choosing the Right College
- A music audition
- A Susquehanna summer workshop
- A group visit arranged by a high school or other organization
- Athletic recruiting programs*
- Visiting a friend* who currently attends Susquehanna.
All students who have visited campus must apply and be admitted, and pay their enrollment deposit by May 1 to qualify. The grant is renewable for a total of four years when the student maintains full-time enrollment and good academic standing (achieving a 2.0 GPA or higher).
*Students visiting campus as athletic recruits or through a family friend should check in at the admission office to complete a visit form or by having the coach complete the form on their behalf.
Students who received tuition remission, tuition exchange or any other combination of scholarships and grants that meet or exceed tuition are not eligible for the campus visit grant.
- These awards provide additional grant assistance through the generous contributions of alumni and friends of the university. Unless otherwise noted, these awards are made on the basis of financial need.
- Students received more than $2.4 million in awards in the 2014-15 academic year.
- Many named awards are designed for students who demonstrate specific characteristics such as intended major, geographic area, etc.
- There is no separate application to be considered for these awards. Susquehanna's financial aid staff reviews all need-based financial aid applications to determine eligibility.
