For Student-Athletes

Scholarships for our student-athletes are packaged differently than for students who do not participate in varsity athletics. Athletic awarding is done on a case-by-case basis. All prospective athletes must complete a FAFSA. Coaches will visit with prospective players about the aid they are eligible to receive.

The Athletic Department offers scholarship awards that recognize academic and athletic talent. In addition to these offers, the Bishop Quayle Award and an award from the Scholarship Competition Days can be added. Federal, state, and outside aid can provide additional assistance.

If you are a student-athlete, you must be declared eligible by the NAIA. This should be done before or immediately after signing a letter of intent.

Submit forms through the Department of Sports Medicine webpage. These forms are due August 1.
