For academic scholarships, students must maintain at least 15 hours and a 3.0 term GPA. Scholarships may be stacked; however, students will not receive any combination of financial aid valued over the cost of attendance for Co-Lin as determined for Federal student aid ($12,230 per academic year). Scholarships are based on ACT composite scores. Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, we are NOW accepting ACT Superscores. Incoming freshmen must self-identify by sending a copy of their ACT Superscore to Enrollment Services.
