Scholarship Renewal Requirements for Four-Year Students

  • Students receiving a SUNY Poly merit scholarship are required to maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA as specified in their scholarship letter from the Undergraduate Admission Office. They must also be enrolled in a degree-granting program full-time (12 credit hours or more).
  • Renewal review will occur after the first year is completed, and subsequently on a semester basis. Students not meeting the scholarship criteria will be notified of their scholarship standing after each semester.
  • All scholarship recipients must maintain full-time status throughout the entire period of enrollment. Scholarship recipients who drop to part-time status (11 credit hours or less) or withdraw from classes completely during a semester in which they are receiving the scholarship will have their scholarship cancelled for that semester and for future semesters. If the scholarship has already been paid for that semester, the money must be returned.
  • Students who are unable to achieve the minimum GPA requirement or who withdraw from classes for extraordinary circumstances will have the opportunity to appeal their loss of scholarship to the Financial Aid Office.
  • Scholarship awards that include a residential portion will require the recipient to be enrolled full-time and live on-campus to receive the full award amount.  The GPA requirement does not pertain to the residential portion of the scholarship.
  • Individual, organization or corporate funded scholarships may have additional obligations.
