The following policy is effective for incoming students entering the 2017-2018 academic year.
Most MUW scholarships and awards are for a period of one academic year (fall and spring only). However, some can be renewed for three additional academic years (freshman), one additional academic year (transfer) or until graduation, whichever occurs first. All scholarship recipients must complete at least 12 hours per semester at The W and maintain a 2.5 or higher MUW cumulative grade point average per academic year in order to renew the scholarship. Centennial and Honors Award recipients must complete at least 12 hours per semester and maintain a 3.0 or higher. Out of State Fee Waiver (Contiguous States, Military, Near Completers, Alumni, and Mission Specific Academic Programs) recipients must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to have their award renewed. Students may receive more than one type of scholarship to attend The W. However, the total W award package, including state, federal, institutional, and private funds, may not exceed total cost of attendance. Awards will be adjusted should the total amount exceed this cost.
Scholarship Appeal Process:
Grades and completion rates are evaluated at the end of each semester to determine if renewal of university awards can be processed for the next academic semester. All students must complete 12 credit hours at the end of each semester and maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA per academic year. If these stipulations are not met, the student has the option to appeal the scholarship denial decision by completing the scholarship appeal form and submitting documentation for review by the scholarship appeals committee. If the appeal is approved, the scholarship will be reinstated for the following semester. If the appeal is denied, the student is ineligible to regain the scholarship for future semesters.
