Scholarship Renewal Requirements

The tables below outline the renewal requirements in detail for the various general scholarships administered by the UT Arlington Scholarship Office.

Common to all the scholarships below are minimum requirements for semester enrollment, for completion of total hours for the year, and for the cumulative UTA GPA.

  • Full-time enrollment (12 UTA hours) is required for each fall and spring semester for the duration of the scholarship. Concurrent enrollment at another institution does not count toward the full-time requirement.
  • A minimum number of UTA hours must be completed during the fall, spring, and summer terms of the scholarship.  Concurrent enrollment at another institution does not count toward this requirement.
  • A minimum cumulative UTA GPA must be maintained.
  • The first review for eligibility for scholarship renewal occurs after spring grades are posted.
  • Ineligible students in spring will be reviewed again at the end of all summer sessions and the scholarship can be renewed if all scholarship deficiencies have been remedied at that time.
  • Without exception, all minimum scholarship requirements must be met by the end of the summer.  Failure to meet all renewal requirements will result in the termination of the scholarship with no option for reinstatement.
  • Renewal requirements are determined by the year the scholarship was first awarded and remain the same for the remainder of the eligible scholarship period. Please refer to the year of the initial scholarship award to review the applicable renewal requirements.
