Maintaining your Scholarship Award
A scholarship recipient who needs to drop a course should first meet with their academic advisor.
Students receiving University academic scholarship awards for academic years Fall 2012-2016 must meet the following criteria to maintain their scholarship:
Students are encouraged to use Wintersession and summer terms to fulfill the 30-hour rule. Earning 30 credit hours each academic year at the awarding institution is the responsibility of the student. Academic progress is monitored at the conclusion of each semester. Failure to maintain academic progress will cause all future eligibility to be cancelled. Students are responsible for any debt to the University caused by the cancellation of scholarships. Courses taken at other institutions to satisfy the 30-hour credit requirements must have prior approval by the Scholarship Office.
Students receiving University academic scholarship awards during the Fall 2011-Spring 2012 academic year and prior must meet the following criteria to maintain their scholarship:
Students must enroll in consecutive semesters to maintain eligibility. Academic progress is monitored at the conclusion of each semester.

Appealing your Scholarship Award
It is the student's responsibility to ensure at the conclusion of the semester that renewal requirements to maintain their scholarship have been met.
The academic records of all students receiving scholarships are reviewed by the Scholarship Office once grades are posted in the system. Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria will have their awards cancelled for all future terms.
Students whose award is cancelled will receive a notification letter and appeal form. Those who believe they meet the appeal criteria listed in Section E of the appeal form may submit an appeal to the Scholarship Appeals Committee in care of the Scholarship Office, University Library, 700 University Avenue, Monroe LA 71209.
