Institutional Renewable Academic Scholarships are applied to a student’s financial aid package each year the student is enrolled full-time and retains the required GPA standards for each scholarship.

The GPA standards are as follows:

  • Presidential Scholarship 3.75 cumulative GPA
  • Dean’s Scholarship 3.50 cumulative GPA
  • Honors Scholarship 3.25 cumulative GPA
  • Merit Scholarship 3.00 cumulative GPA

If a student does not maintain the required GPA standards for a particular scholarship, he or she will be awarded the next lowest scholarship for the remainder of school enrollment or until the cumulative GPA falls again. Once a student loses eligibility for an Institutional Scholarship, eligibility cannot be regained. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0, that student becomes permanently ineligible to receive any further Institutional Academic Renewable Scholarship money for the remainder of the student’s program.

*To qualify for the full renewable scholarship amounts, required documents must be obtained by the Admissions and Financial Aid offices by July 15. Please contact both offices to ensure all paperwork has been received.
