The following merit scholarships of one-half tuition and above (Founders, Paschal Carter, Legacy, Dunbar, Wells, Carr, Multicultural) will be retained as long as recipients maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0.
This standard will not be applied until the end of the sophomore year. (However, students below a 2.0 grade point average at the end of the first year lose their scholarships.)
Students not meeting the required 3.0 GPA by the end of their sophomore year will drop down to a lower award level, as long as their cumulative GPA is above a 2.0. They will regain their original award upon bringing their cumulative GPA back up to the award level.
Students will lose their award or drop down to another category only on the basis of an end-of-year calculation of grades. However, a student may regain or move back up on the basis of a mid-year calculation of grades.
All recipients of Alumni and Provost awards must maintain a minimum of 2.0 during the entire span of their award.
