REGENTS SCHOLARSHIP CHANGES
The Regents Scholarship has made some changes for the class of 2019 and beyond. Some of the changes include a lower GPA requirement (3.3) and lower ACT score requirement (22). The award amounts have changed as well and will be based on financial need and is subject to funding. We encourage parents to look over the Regents Scholarship Program Guide to see all of the changes: https://stepuputah.com/files/regents/2018_program-guide-2019-rules.pdf
