UE Scholarship Renewal Requirements
The renewal of all scholarships and financial aid requires that students maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). The standards for SAP include both a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) and a credit-hours-earned expectation (earning at least 67% of all attempted credit hours). Some scholarships require a higher GPA for renewal. GPAs are not monitored for these scholarships nor are the scholarships reduced following the fall semester.
Unless noted below, students must be meeting SAP to be eligible for renewal of UE scholarships and grants for the next academic year. Students should also be aware that the full renewal of UE aid may require continued residency in UE-approved housing. View UE’s housing and financial aid renewal policy.
|Scholarship||Cumulative GPA Requirement|
|Academic, Art, Dean, Faculty, Music, National Need for Nurses, Phi Theta Kappa, Ridgway, Scout, Theatre, and Toyota||2.5
If your cumulative GPA falls between 2.0 – 2.49 following any academic year, your largest UE scholarship listed to the left will be reduced by $1,500. If your scholarship is adjusted downward due to grades, you may regain the original value of your scholarship if you achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50 by the following May.
|Davidson, Direct Entry DPT, and Pott Engineering||2.5
All Scholar Day awards require a 2.5 GPA for renewal. If your scholarship is lost due to grades, it may be regained if you achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 by the following May.

If your cumulative GPA falls between 2.50 – 2.99 following any academic year, your largest UE scholarship listed to the left will be reduced by $3,000. If your cumulative GPA falls between 2.0 – 2.49 following any academic year, your scholarship will be replaced by an Academic Scholarship ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. If your scholarship is adjusted downward due to grades, you may regain the original value of your scholarship if you achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 by the following May.
Duration of Scholarships
Unless specified below, University of Evansville Merit Scholarships are available for a maximum of four years (8 semesters), or until the requirements for the first bachelors’ degree have been met, whichever comes first. Students who are in a four year program that will not graduate in four years may appeal for an extension of the scholarship.
Physical therapy students admitted into the DPT program will receive their primary merit-based award for either six years (12 semesters) or seven years (14 semesters), depending upon the curriculum plan selected by the student approved by UE faculty. Awards remain fixed at their fourth-year value. Add-on merit-awards and need-based grants are available only for four years.
Students in these five-year programs will receive their UE awards for five years: BS/MS health services administration, applied exercise science/PTA, athletic training/PTA, exercise science/health services administration, and music education/music therapy.
