A full-tuition package to help you attend college and afford college.

The College of St. Scholastica, private, Catholic, four-year, liberal arts college in Duluth, MN, is proud to introduce a way for Minnesota high school students to say "yes" to college and the career of your choice.

Designed for great students with great need, the CSSyes Scholarship:

  • Covers remainder of tuition after factoring in your Benedictine Scholarship, other St. Scholastica scholarships and grants, and state and federal grant funding;
  • Renews each year, for three additional years (with a minimum 2.4 GPA while at St. Scholastica), so you can cover each year of your undergraduate degree;
  • Allows you to earn outside scholarships to cover room, board and books.

To apply to be considered for the CSSyes Scholarship, complete the following by April 2, 2015:

  1. Apply to The College of St. Scholastica as a first-year student for Fall 2015
  2. Complete your CSSyes Scholarship application 
    • Recipients will be notified beginning April 20, 2015
  3. Come for an official visit on the Duluth campus (a personal visit or event)
  4. File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 

Minnesota high school students, applying for admission as first-year students in the traditional undergraduate program,  from low-income families are eligible to be considered for the CSSyes Scholarship if they maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher, earn a minimum score of 20 on the ACT, are U.S. citizens, and are Minnesota residents. And unlike other tuition packages, the CSSyes Scholarship does not require that you attend a college readiness program.

  • "I felt comfortable with my choice to come to St. Scholastica because my family and I understood the investment here, which felt more like what we thought a public school would cost. The admissions and financial aid departments did everything they could to help us through the process and understand that St. Scholastica is affordable. It has been more than worth it."
