Freshman scholarships

Considerations: MSU will review your GPA (weighted if available) for ninth through 11th grades. Should you choose to submit a test score, only your best ACT or SAT test score will be used. MSU does not superscore tests. Students who choose to apply without a test score will be eligible for scholarships based on high school performance and a holistic review of their application material. See the test-optional policy for more information. 

Your essay and other information from your MSU application may also be used in the selection process.
