Early Jacket Scholarship

The Early Jacket Scholarship is awarded on the basis of a student’s completion of BHSU college credit while in high school.

Early Jacket Scholarships range between $500 and $7,500 (distributed over two years or until the completion of a bachelor’s degree, whichever comes first), provided the student maintains the cumulative grade-point average requirement and enrolls in 30 BHSU credit hours per academic year.


To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be admitted to BHSU and meet the following requirements:

  • A minimum grade of ‘B’ in qualifying dual credit classes;
  • Dual credit must be earned through BHSU (BHSU credit hours) while in high school;
  • Students must enroll at BHSU as a freshman the semester following the completion of high school (transfer students are not eligible for the Early Jacket).
  • College credits earned in high school from a college/university other than BHSU are not eligible for the Early Jacket Scholarship.
