I was awarded a scholarship. What happens if I become ineligible during the academic year?

Please contact us and we will work with you because each scholarship is different. Your scholarship requirements are listed in your award letter which can be found in myUVU. Ineligibility varies depending on the specific scholarship, such as GPA or full time enrollment requirements.

Depending on the circumstances, we can submit an appeal to Financial Aid. This provides you with an opportunity to provide context as well as relevant documentation.

Unfortunately, none of our scholarships can be deferred to another semester. If you have a planned absence or take a leave of absence, any remaining funds of your scholarship will not disburse.
