Academic Scholarship Renewability
In order to maintain academic scholarships, the student must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 (3.0 for students who entered Jewell prior to the Fall of 2009). Scholarship renewal eligibility is reviewed at the end of the academic year. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.5 will be allowed one semester to raise the cumulative GPA to 2.5. A student who fails to raise the GPA will not be eligible for the academic scholarship. A student whose academic scholarship is not renewed will be ineligible for an academic scholarship until a cumulative GPA of 2.5 is achieved.
Recipients of a full-tuition Distinguished Scholars Award or full-tuition Jewell Scholarship must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5. Scholarship renewal eligibility is reviewed at the end of the academic year. A probationary semester is provided as well. Only one probationary semester will be permitted for academic scholarship recipients.
