Traditional, Undergraduate On-Campus International and GAP Year Student Scholarships

International and Gap Year Student Scholarships may be available to you if you do not enroll at GCU the semester following your high school graduation or if you are an international student who is fully admissible and attending GCU with an F-1 Visa.

To apply for International and Gap Year Student Scholarships, you must:

  • Submit unofficial transcripts for all institutions attended since high school. If you did not attend another college or university, you must provide your high school transcript. SAT and/or ACT test scores cannot be used if any college coursework has been attempted. Students who have less than 24 attempted college credits must use their high school GPA to qualify for academic scholarships. Students who have 24 or more attempted college credits must use their cumulative college GPA to qualify for academic scholarships.
  • Upon completion of final terms at all institutions, provide the official transcripts to GCU. For scholarship adjustment considerations, submit unofficial transcripts, due no later than two weeks prior to the start of the term. All official transcripts are due by day 21 of the semester to lock in your scholarship award.
  • Once enrolled as a traditional, undergraduate student and attending classes on GCU’s main campus, you must maintain continuous full-time enrollment at GCU and adhere to the scholarship program requirements for renewal..
