UCM’s signature Red and Black Scholarship provides students with more money so they can focus on their future and graduate with less debt. This automatic, merit-based scholarship can be combined with other scholarships and is guaranteed – if you qualify, you receive it! The higher your GPA and official ACT composite score (or Superscore, whichever is higher), the more money you will be eligible to receive. You can earn anywhere from $1,000 up to full tuition and fees. Use the chart below to calculate your potential scholarship amount.
Because UCM is test-optional, you can still receive the Red and Black Scholarship even if you haven’t taken the ACT, depending on your cumulative, official high-school transcript GPA (6th, 7th or 8th semester, whichever is higher).
