Renewal Requirements: Distinguished Scholar Award
- Maintain continuous enrollment each Fall and Spring semester.
- Maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average.
- Remain a degree-seeking student pursuing first undergraduate degree.
- Register for a minimum 6 credits each semester. (Award will be pro-rated for less than full-time enrollment. Full-time enrollment is strongly encouraged to ensure you receive the maximum award benefit within the 10 semester limit.)
- Maximum length of eligibility is ten (10) semesters.
- The award will be applied up to a term maximum of 18 credits per semester for Fall/Spring, 6 credits for Winterim, and 12 credits for Summer. The student is responsible for paying the full tuition charge (including non-resident portion) of any credits taken beyond the term maximum.
- Winterim and Summer Sessions are not counted against the 10 semester limit, but you must apply separately for those sessions through the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid. Funding is not guaranteed.
