Renewal Requirements

To renew institutional scholarships for subsequent academic years, all scholars are required to maintain specific cumulative grade-point averages and to earn a minimum of 30 credit hours during the academic year.  Renewal criteria for students entering WVU during the 2017-2018 academic year can be found under the scholarship information for their page (i.e. Freshmen, Transfer, International, etc.).

Renewal criteria for students entering WVU prior to the fall 2017 semester can be found here.

Academic Progress

Academic standards exist for each level of scholarship awards and are measured at the end of the spring semester of each academic year. Students are notified in writing at the end of the spring semester if appropriate progress has not been attained, and summer school may be used in attempt to make up deficiencies. Students failing to meet renewal requirements by the end of the summer school session will not have their scholarship renewed. Students whose first enrollment is the spring semester or have deferred their scholarship for one or more semesters may be on a different review cycle where academic progress is measured after the fall semester.

Students can submit the "Scholarship Exception Request Form" available on the Forms section of our website if they can document extenuating circumstances such as a family, medical, or personal event which adversely affected their academic performance.
