Scholarship Renewal Terms
Congratulations on being awarded an academic scholarship at the University of Dallas!
In order for your scholarship to be applied toward your tuition charges for the academic
year, please accept your scholarship and the conditions listed below.
Students must show that they have maintained full-time academic status each semester,
enrolling in a minimum 12 credits each semester.
In addition, students must always meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements and must not be on financial aid suspension at the end of any term.
At the end of a student's sophomore (or second) year at UD, a 2.5 cumulative GPA is
required in order to remain eligible for all merit scholarships. If a student does
not meet the 2.5 cumulative GPA by the end of four semesters, the affected award(s) will be suspended or adjusted. For GPAs falling between 2.0
and 2.4999, awards are prorated at 50%.* For GPAs below 2.0, awards are suspended.
COVID-19 POLICY UPDATE: For students who are completing their 4th semester in spring 2020, there will be
no review for proration of merit scholarships. Students in their 4th semester who
are meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements at the end of spring 2020 will retain their full academic scholarship. For cumulative
GPAs below 2.0, awards will be suspended.
- The Phi Theta Kappa scholarship and seminary awards require a 2.0 cumulative GPA,
- Departmental Awards require that you meet a 2.5 cumulative GPA or greater threshold in addition to academic performance criteria established by the academic department offering the scholarship. There is no proration for departmental scholarships.
Students who lose their scholarships, either because of suspension status or for failing
to meet the GPA requirement by the end of sophomore year, may appeal both loss of scholarship and loss of financial aid, as applicable.
