After June 1, scholarships may be awarded by need. Each applicant is first considered for all grants and scholarships awarded, remaining need may be met with loans and/or campus employment as eligibility permits.

Students experiencing discipline problems or facing disciplinary action may lose their scholarships. In addition, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is required to keep all scholarships. For renewable scholarships, a student not maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress may apply for reinstatement of the scholarship after one year without the scholarship provided the student fulfilled SAP the previous year. To ensure eligibility of renewable scholarships students must also complete the FAFSA by the determined priority date.
