Q - What 3 things do I need to do to keep my UAS scholarship?

1. Keep your cumulative grade point average a 3.0 or above every semester.
2. Maintain full time enrollment (12 hours) every semester.
3. Perform 75 hours of service to the university (60 hours if in Honors HPEO) every semester.

Q - What does my cumulative grade point average have to be to keep my scholarship?

Your cumulative grade point average must be 3.0 or above.

Q - What if my cumulative grade point averages falls below the required average?

You will have one semester of probation after your CGPA falls below 3.0. If you do not raise it to at least a 3.0 you will lose your scholarship. If at any time your CGPA falls below a 3.0 and you have already used your probation semester you will lose your scholarship for any future terms.
