Students receiving one of the university's merit scholarships (see list of scholarships below) may submit a scholarship appeal if there is an extenuating, unforeseen circumstance that prevents a student from meeting the scholarship requirements. Scholarship requirements may be found on the website. Exceptions are only granted once in a student’s academic career.
Supporting documentation must be submitted along with the appeal to the Scholarship Committee for review. Documentation provided after an appeal has been submitted will not be accepted or reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. The documentation should support statements made in the appeal request. Students must address in the appeal how the situation has been resolved and the steps taken to prevent similar challenges in the future.
Scholarship appeals and supporting documentation may be submitted up to 45 days after the final semester in which a student received a merit scholarship. Students that register and complete summer courses to meet scholarship renewal requirements may submit an appeal within 45 days of the completion of the course(s).
Scholarships eligible to be considered for an appeal:
To request an exception for departmental scholarships, please follow up directly with the department providing the scholarship. For scholarships awarded from organizations outside of UTA, students will need to follow up directly with the organization that awards the scholarship.
As a recipient of one of our merit scholarships, 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 award will be prorated to reflect enrollment.
For additional questions about the scholarship appeal process please contact the Scholarships Office in one of the following ways:
