A full-tuition package to help you attend college and afford college.

The College of St. Scholastica is proud to introduce a way for high school students to say "yes" to college and the career of your choice.

Designed for great students with great need, the CSSyes Scholarship:

  • Covers remainder of tuition (this does not include room/board or books) after factoring in your Benedictine Scholarship, other St. Scholastica scholarships and grants, and state and federal grant funding;
  • Is renewable for up to three additional years, or until receiving a bachelor's degree, as long as you maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) along with full-time enrollment status (12-18 credits).  SAP is defined as a 67% completion rate and a 2.0 GPA, or better;
  • Allows you to earn outside scholarships to cover room, board, and books.
