CPM has a number of scholarship programs available to the continuing student population. Students are formally notified of all offers in writing from the Director of Financial Aid, and must sign an award letter of acceptance to receive the credit of these awards to their tuition account.
Entering candidates may be awarded scholarships in varying amounts dependent upon their academic records. Those with a cumulative undergraduate Science GPA of 3.50 are seriously considered for awards, relative to available funding.
CPM students may not receive more than one institutional funded scholarship, but may receive multiple awards through a variety of scholarship sources. If a student is eligible for more than one institutional scholarship, s/he will be awarded the larger one. These institutional awards are made available no later than September of the academic year.
Scholarship awards are based on the individual's grade point average (GPA) for those courses completed at CPM for the academic year. Students must be registered as full-time status in order to be eligible for consideration in half-tuition scholarship awards.
Scholarships are awarded each year upon approval of funding by the Board of Trustees. The awarding of scholarships is effective for one academic year only, and does not guarantee the recipient future awards. Awards cannot be carried into any other year other than the one for which it has been awarded.
The college's half-tuition scholarship program recognizes and rewards our outstanding continuing students academic achievements. These awards, granted to the highest cumulative GPA of 4.0, honor those students who have indicated a personal dedication to academic merit and performance through excellence in their professional GPA.
CPM proudly recognizes additional students who have achieved academic excellence on the basis of their current year GPA through its internal scholarship awards program. The number and amount of these awards varies with fund availability and the number of eligible students achieving academic distinction within the particular academic year.
