Scholarship Renewal Frequently Asked Questions
What are the renewal requirements for each scholarship?
How do I know if I’ve met the renewal requirements?
After grades are finalized each spring term, the Scholarship Office will conduct an automatic review for each award to determine if the student has satisfied the renewal requirements for their scholarship. When the review is complete the student will be sent a letter notifying them of their current eligibility status, confirming whether they’ve met the renewal requirements, or have not met the renewal requirements and need to enroll in summer courses to try to maintain their eligibility for the upcoming year.
A final review will be conducted after all summer grades have been posted, to determine if the student has satisfied the renewal requirements for each scholarship. A student will be notified only if their eligibility status has changed.
