General Scholarship Policies
Fall 2018/Spring 2019
- Applications for scholarships have a priority dead line of October 15 for current year spring enrollment or following year fall enrollment. Applications for scholarship have a secondary priority deadline of May 15 for following year fall enrollment. Scholarship applications received after May 15 will be reviewed only on a budget availability basis.
- All institutional scholarships or combinations of institutional scholarship are limited to cost of attendance less federal aid, state aid, and other non-institutional scholarships.
- Students must be enrolled in a minimum 12 credit hours with SCU to receive institutional scholarships, except in cases where the student needs fewer than 12 hours to graduate. In that case, the scholarship will be prorated to hours enrolled.
- The student must be in good standing with the university (academic and behavior) and not on any form of probation. Student on probation will be immediately ineligible for any institutional scholarship and will remain so as long as on probation. Once a student is no longer on probation, they may reapply for scholarship.
- Student must maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA for all college course work to continue to receive any institutional scholarships (unless superseded by specific scholarship requirements). For transfer students, only hours transferred in and counting towards graduation requirements will be used in the calculation.
- With the exception of Academic Scholarship s, all scholarships will be considered awarded for four full years unless/until the student no longer qualifies for the scholarship. Scholarships will be limited to 120 credit hours college level instruction (including hours transferred in and counted towards graduation requirements).
- Any institutional scholarship may only be stacked with an academic scholarship. A benefit scholars hip will be allowed to be added to any other scholarship or combination of scholarships based on funds availability and limited to cost of attendance. A funded scholarship will be allowed to be added to any other scholarship or combination of scholarships based on funds availability and limited to cost of attendance.
- When a student drops or withdraws from the University, scholarships will be reduced at a rate consistent with the tuition refund policy applicable to the student. Students dropping below full-time (12 hours) during the course of a semester will immediately become
- ineligible for scholarships for that semester (see above exception). Withdrawn courses are not considered drops and will not affect scholarship eligibility as a result.
- Once the midpoint of the semester has been reached, scholarship amounts will not be changed again for that semester except in the case of a calculation error on the part of the university. Classes added after the midpoint of the semester must be paid for by the student before the end of the semester according to university policy.
