The student’s high school and/or college work is converted by Millsaps to a U.S. GPA on a 4.0 scale. The final award will be determined by additional criteria such as the rigor of a student's academic program and high school and/or college curriculum, leadership, extracurricular involvement, letters of recommendation, alumni/legacy relationships, institutional fit and demonstrated interest. No separate application is required for merit-based scholarships. Students may be eligible for artistic, musical or theatre talent. Need based aid is not available for international students through Millsaps College.

International applicants with an equivalent 3.9 GPA or above will automatically be considered upon submission of a complete undergraduate application for admission.
