The first year retention of the scholarship requires you enroll in a minimum of 15 hours in the fall, complete a minimum of 12 hours by the end of the fall semester with a 2.5 GPA, and complete 30 hours by the end of the spring semester with a 3.0 GPA. If a student does not meet these requirements by the end of the spring semester, deficiencies may be made up by taking classes at the student’s expense during the first summer session on the SAU-Magnolia campus. After the first year, students are required to complete 15 hours each semester with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
After the first year: Scholarships are renewed provided that recipients maintain at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average and complete at least 15 semester hours of credit on the Magnolia campus each semester. Students who fail to achieve the minimum cumulative grade point average will be dropped from the scholarship program for the next full-length semester. However, if students complete a minimum of 15 semester hours on the Magnolia campus during the ineligible semester and raise their cumulative grade point average to at least a 3.00, their scholarships may be reinstated one time, if the students are otherwise eligible. Students who fail to complete 15 semester hours will be dropped from the scholarship program for the next full-length semester. However, if students complete a total of 30 semester hours on the Magnolia campus during the ineligible semester and the preceding regular semester, their scholarships may be reinstated one time, if the students are otherwise eligible. The ineligible semester will be counted against the total semesters for which the scholarship is provided.
