Owensboro, Ky.—Kentucky Wesleyan College has launched a new program that will cover 100% of tuition for every first-time, full-time Kentucky student with a minimum 3.0 grade-point average who is eligible for Pell Grants in their first year.
The Commonwealth Commitment will be offered beginning in fall 2022. Using all federal student aid programs, state grants and Kentucky Wesleyan scholarships, students will have the opportunity to attend Wesleyan with minimal personal financial responsibility.
“The Commonwealth Commitment is an innovative way to recognize and reward students who have worked hard in the classroom and need additional scholarship support to achieve their dream of a bachelor’s degree,” said Matthew Ruark, vice president of admissions and financial aid.
To qualify, students must:
- Have a minimum 3.0 high school GPA.
- Be a Kentucky resident and graduate of a Kentucky public, private or home school.
- File the FAFSA each year and remain Pell eligible.
- Be a first-time, full-time student.
- Major in an in-person academic program.
To maintain the Commonwealth Commitment, students must:
- Make satisfactory academic progress.
- Complete their academic program in eight semesters or less.
- Maintain full-time status.
