UE Merit-based Scholarships (GPA requirements)
The renewal of all scholarships and financial aid requires that students maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). The standards for SAP include both a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) and a credit-hours-earned expectation (earning at least 67% of all attempted credit hours), when monitored each May. Please be familiar with UE’s policy for Satisfactory Academic Progress. Some scholarships require a higher GPA when SAP is checked each May. Students are not monitored nor is aid reduced following the fall semester. The following standards apply to the renewal of awards following the 2013-14 academic year.
