Scholarship Information
Highlights Lyon College offers a number of scholarships for qualified students. Students should apply early and send transcripts and copies of standardized test scores (ACT/SAT) to Lyon College's Office of Enrollment Services. Lyon awards academic merit-based aid according to a review of a student’s application and academic performance. These amounts are annual and renewable for up to eight semesters of undergraduate study provided that the student maintains requirements. Great merit scholarships are offered and students will be notified of their award by the Admissions Office after being accepted.

A select number of accepted freshmen are invited to apply and interview for limited spots in the prestigious Honors Fellows Program — a rigorous course of study designed to provide highly skilled, motivated students the opportunity to travel, hone their research skills, and exchange ideas in a challenging and supportive academic environment. A Fellow receives an additional stipend of up to $7,000.

Lyon welcomes qualified transfer students who have demonstrated academic ability and commitment to the pursuit of a higher education at previous institutions. Transfer students with a GPA of 2.75 or higher are eligible to receive a transfer scholarship. For more information on this program, call (800) 423-2542.
