Online MBA Referral Scholarship
We believe that current Leavey School of Business Online MBA students are well-positioned to identify the next leaders in Silicon Valley who would benefit from the Online MBA program. Our Online MBA Referral Scholarship gives our current students an opportunity to make a positive impact on the future of Bronco Nation.
How It Works:
In the first quarter of the referred student's enrollment in the Online MBA program, the referred student AND the referring current student will each receive a $1,000 scholarship.
Referrals must be submitted prior to the prospective student's submission of an application to the Online MBA program. Referrals are not valid for students who have already submitted applications, received admission offers, or are currently enrolled in the program.
Scholarships will only be distributed if the referred student is admitted to the program and chooses to attend SCU starting winter 2019 or spring 2019.
Current students must be in good academic standing with at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA and scholarship recipients must be enrolled in at least 6 units in the Online MBA program.
We encourage prospective students to set aside time to prepare for the GMAT because the same skills that lead to success on the exam will be useful when they begin their Online MBA coursework. Due to the costs involved with preparing for the GMAT, students who are admitted to the Online MBA program and submit a GMAT score will receive a $500 scholarship.
Additional merit scholarships are also available for applicants with strong scores. No additional application is required.
How It Works:
The Online MBA GMAT Test Bonus will be distributed in the first quarter of the recipient's enrollment in the Online MBA program.
This award is valid for new Online MBA students only. To receive the scholarship, you must be enrolled in at least 6 units in the Online MBA program.
CAAP Alumni Scholarship
Graduates from Santa Clara University's Certificate of Advanced Accounting Proficiency (CAAP) program who demonstrate strong merit are eligible for a $3,000 scholarship to the Online MBA program. No additional application is required.
How It Works:
The CAAP Alumni Scholarship will be distributed in the first quarter of the recipient's enrollment in the Online MBA program.
The CAAP Alumni Scholarship is valid for new Online MBA students only. To receive the scholarship, you must be enrolled in at least 6 units in the Online MBA program.
Available Course Waiver:
Both CAAP graduates and students with a current Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license are eligible to waive the Online MBA Financial Accounting (ACTG 3000, 4 units) course (approx. $4,500 savings).
Please contact an Admissions Advisor for more information on this course waiver.
Applying for Financial Aid
If you plan to apply for federal student loans, please file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit all required documentation in a timely manner to allow Santa Clara ample time to process your financial aid package. We recommend filing as soon as possible after January 1 of the calendar year in which you wish to enroll. The Santa Clara FAFSA school code is 001326.
*Offer details: Scholarship offer available only to new (first-time) enrollees starting the program in the winter 2019 term, not current or returning students. To utilize this scholarship offer, prospective students must apply and be accepted as well as identify the offer and request that it be applied at the time of enrollment. Scholarship funds are not payable directly to recipients: funds will be credited exclusively toward student's tuition in the final academic term required for completion of the program. The financial assistance of students receiving the scholarship may require modification, to account for the scholarship by preventing any "over-award," such that the financial assistance received does not exceed the cost of attendance, as defined and determined by the Office of Financial Aid of Santa Clara University. Recipients of the scholarship must remain continuously enrolled in the program through completion (or obtain a university-approved leave of absence) and must maintain satisfactory academic progress at all times for scholarship to remain in effect. This scholarship offer may be revised, rescinded or terminated at any time. This scholarship offer cannot be combined with other offers or tuition offsets. All admissions and scholarship decisions of Santa Clara University are final.
