Scholarship Renewal Process

Scholarships may be renewed up to four semesters.  Renewals are completed on a semester by semester basis.  The Scholarship Coordinator contacts the scholarship recipients and notifies them of the deadline.  Students must respond by the appropriate deadline in order to be considered for continuation.

Fifth Renewal Process

Scholarships may be renewed up to four semesters, and in some occasions students may request a fifth semester.    The Scholarship Coordinator contacts the scholarship recipients and notifies them of the deadline.  A fifth semester request must be completed by the student and returned to the Scholarship Coordinator by the appropriate deadline.  Fifth semester requests are determined by the scholarship committee and all decisions are final.  The Scholarship Coordinator notifies the students requesting a fifth semester of the committee’s decision.

Scholarship Warning & Removal Process

Students receiving scholarships are required to meet all of the scholarship criteria to continue as a scholarship recipient.  Failure to do so can result in a warning and/or the removal from the scholarship.  The Scholarship Coordinator contacts the scholarship recipients who have failed to meet the scholarship criteria.  Decisions regarding scholarship warnings and removals are determined by the scholarship committee and all decisions are final.  The Scholarship Coordinator notifies the students the committee’s decision.  In some instances, students may be automatically removed from scholarships.  Examples of this include: withdrawal from all courses within a semester, failing all courses within a semester, failure to enroll, causing a gap in enrollment within an academic year.
