For recipients enrolled prior to the Fall Semester of 2012, the Presidential Scholarship is a waiver for one-half tuition. Students enrolling for more than 18 hours in a term are charged an overload fee, and the award will cover one half of the overload fee.
Presidential scholars must maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. If the GPA drops below 3.0 at the end of the spring semester of any academic year, the scholarship will not be renewed. However, if the cumulative GPA is raised to a 3.0 at the end of the fall or summer semester, the award can be reinstated upon request. The scholarship is awarded for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study.
One semester of eligibility is used when the scholarship is applied in any term (fall, spring, or summer), regardless of the number of hours enrolled. Withdrawal during any term that results in less than a 100 percent refund will count as one semester of eligibility used. Exceptions can be made to extend this scholarship for more than the maximum number of semesters based on extraordinary circumstances.
Special fees such as the Health Center fee, late charges, etc., are not covered. In combination with other fee-specific awards, the maximum award cannot exceed total fees. This scholarship does not cover housing and dining charges. This scholarship may
only be applied to institutional charges. All financial aid you
receive, when combined with the Presidential Scholarship, cannot exceed
the total cost of attendance.
