Renewing the scholarship is done through your New Century Scholarship account. If you are a scholarship recipient from the graduating classes of 2012-2015 and have not set-up your account please contact us for specific instructions.

Please note, students who deferred their scholarship immediately after high school graduation will need to follow similar steps as if they were renewing, the only difference is that they will not need to submit proof of completing a previous semester since they have not actually attended college previously.
