The Excelsior Scholarship

Do I have to maintain a certain grade point average?

You will need to achieve a passing grade in every course covered by the scholarship. If you fail one or more of your required courses and are not able to meet the 30 credit completion requirement each year, you will lose eligibility for the scholarship and could be asked to repay some or all of the funds received.

Keep in mind that you may have other awards which also carry academic standards that differ from those required for the Excelsior Scholarship.

Can I lose eligibility for the scholarship?
