What will happen if I do not meet the renewal criteria for my scholarship?

If you do not meet or exceed the renewal criteria by the end of each spring semester, you may review the following options to determine your eligibility:

  • Enroll in ASU summer session courses- If you need to complete additional ASU credit hours or increase your ASU cumulative GPA to meet renewal criteria, you can take summer classes to make up these deficiencies. If you do not meet renewal criteria after taking summer session courses, you may not file an appeal. It is your responsibility to work with your advisor to determine the feasibility of the ASU summer enrollment option.
  • Scholarship Appeal – for use if you are unable to utilize the summer option to meet criteria AND you experienced significant, extenuating circumstances beyond your control (such as an extended, serious medical emergency). Completed appeals must be submitted by no later than close of business on July 1. Late requests will not be accepted. If you experienced other challenges throughout the year, such as difficulty with classes, time management, work or family responsibilities, or other co-curricular commitments, be aware that these are not considered extenuating circumstances. In these cases, it is important to consult with your academic advisor to determine feasibility of the ASU summer enrollment option and utilize ASU resources earlier in the semester to ensure that you receive the guidance and assistance necessary to remain on track academically. Read more about the scholarship appeal process, examples of extenuating circumstances and the form. 

If your appeal is denied or if you do not meet renewal criteria after summer course work, your scholarship will not be reinstated and all remaining semester(s) of award will be forfeited. You must receive the award during consecutive fall & spring semester enrollment/completion, meet annual criteria requirements at the end of each spring semester.
