Cardinal Commitment — Nearly half of SVSU freshmen had their entire tuition paid for by scholarships and grants
At SVSU, we want everyone to obtain a first-class college education, regardless of income. Last year, 49% of SVSU freshmen had their entire tuition paid for by scholarships and grants that never have to be repaid.
First-time-in-college students with combined student and family adjusted gross annual income of $70,000 or less may qualify for the Cardinal Commitment. This assures students that SVSU will step up with additional funding if your basic tuition costs exceed your grants and scholarships!
