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 total hours earned 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.
  • Students may enroll in less than full-time hours in their final – graduating semester and still retain their scholarship if meeting all other requirements. While students do not need to be full-time, the amount of the scholarship they are eligible to receive in the final semester will depend on enrollment. The scholarship will be prorated to reflect enrollment.

  • Renewal requirements are determined by the year the scholarship was first offered and remain the same for the remainder of the eligible scholarship period. Please refer to the year of the initial scholarship offer to review the applicable renewal requirements.
