Pelican Promise Retention Requirements

Award Retention

To retain the award, recipients must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and earn 67% of the hours they attempt as well as meeting the University’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. This policy is checked following each semester. In addition, the financial need status of this award is based on the annual submission of the FAFSA. Students’ FAFSA’s must continue to demonstrate 150% of poverty.

The scholarship shall be withdrawn for any semester in which the recipient drops to part-time status prior to the completion of the university refund period (24th class day), unless it is the student’s graduating semester.

Additionally, retention of all University scholarships is contingent upon available funding.
