Student Financial Services
Academic Excellence Scholarship
Terms and Conditions
Described below are the rights and responsibilities for students who have been awarded a Scholarship for Academic Excellence. This scholarship is no longer being awarded to additional students.
In order to retain your scholarship, you must remain a full-time student (defined as enrolling in a minimum of twelve credits per semester), and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 evaluated on a semester basis. Students who fail to maintain the minimum grade point average will be afforded a one-semester probationary period after which the scholarship will be withdrawn if a 3.0 cumulative average has not been achieved during that period. Once withdrawn, this scholarship may not be reinstated in the future. This scholarship is a revocable award from the University.
Length of Scholarship
You may receive this scholarship for a total of eight semesters or until you graduate, whichever comes first.
Relationship to Need-Based Financial Aid
As a merit scholarship, this award is not based on need or financial aid eligibility. If you apply/have applied for need-based financial aid at the University, you will receive more information on your total financial aid package directly from Student Financial Services. Your scholarship will be calculated into your overall aid package.
Your Award Letter
Your $3,500 Academic Excellence Award will be reflected on your financial aid award and bill as one of the four following scholarships: G. Henderson Scholarship, General Fund Scholarship, Alumni Annual Giving Scholarship, or Academic Excellence Scholarship.
Your scholarship may not be used to attend summer session classes.
Leaves of Absence & Withdrawing
You may take an approved Leave of Absence from the University for up to two consecutive semesters and retain your scholarship. Your scholarship will not be reinstated if you choose to withdraw, become inactive, or if you are suspended or dismissed from the University.
