Academic Scholarships

Academic scholarships require that students maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50 and complete a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year or meet the standards specified by a particular academic program. Failure to maintain these requirements will result in forfeiture of the scholarship. Students may petition the scholarship granting body to keep their scholarship one additional semester if it can be shown that circumstances beyond their control impeded their performance. Upon resumption of the minimal qualifying requirements, students may reapply through the appropriate scholarship granting body. Renewal of a previously lost scholarship is not guaranteed and is subject to availability of funds. No student will receive more than one institutional academic scholarship.
