First-time Freshmen are students who have graduated from high school or completed a GED but have not attempted any college hours since. This does NOT include dual credit or AP classes. They are pursuing one of our 40+ majors and programs


We know there’s more to you than your grades. Yes, GPA, test scores, and grades are important, but Schreiner University awards scholarships for transfer students up to $17,000 per year and scholarships to new incoming freshmen of up to $100,000 over four years based on your GRIT!

Plus, there’s no extra step – your application to Schreiner is also your scholarship application! Be sure to add all of your involvement to get up to $100,000 in scholarships over four years.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know if I need additional items for my application?

Your admission counselor will reach out to you via phone, email, and mail to let you know if the admission committee has requested additional information. You can also view all requested information on your applicant dashboard by logging back into the online application.

What is the minimum SAT or ACT score?

At Schreiner, we look at students holistically and consider students more than just a number. We do take standardized test scores into account, but for first-time freshmen we will do a qualitative evaluation of your application to assess your involvement in high school and in your community to determine your fit at Schreiner and for scholarship considerations.

What if I don’t meet the admission criteria?

First-time freshmen who do not meet the admission requirements stated above, additional documentation (such as resume, essay, short answer questions) may be requested to be sent with the student’s application to the Admission Committee for a decision. At Schreiner, we look at students holistically and will take high school and community involvement and student efforts into account when making an admission decision.
