Presidential Scholarship Program



All “NEW” Full Time students enrolled in Associate Degree and or Practical Nursing at either the Philadelphia or Media campus who have never attended P.I.T. in the past, are eligible to take the Accuplacer test “ONE” time only to see if they qualify for the scholarship.

If the Accuplacer was taken in the past, those scores would be used to see if a candidate is eligible for the scholarship. The Accuplacer must be taken at P.I.T. in order to be eligible; the scores will be calculated and audited by the College Board to determine Presidential eligibility.

Candidates for the Presidential Scholarship must achieve threshold Accuplacer scores or greater on all three dimensions of essential academic skills:

Arithmetic Score – 70 or greater

Reading Comprehension – 80 or greater

Sentence Structure – 80 or greater

New, full-time students who have achieved or surpassed scores required on all three Accuplacer dimensions of essential academic skills will receive a Presidential Scholarship “up to” but not to exceed $1,000 for the first semester, only after PHEAA and PELL grants have been awarded, in order to meet unfulfilled financial needs.

No student stipends or refunds will be released directly to students from funds awarded through a Presidential Scholarship.
