A Scholarship Contract allows you to take less than the required credit hours to maintain a scholarship. There are two types of contracts available: a contract for a 28 hour alternative and a contract for those who are graduating. Scholarship contracts may not be used for athletic or off-campus scholarships.
28 Hour Alternative
If you are awarded a fall and winter scholarship, you may adjust your credit hour requirement for a total of 28.0 or more credits between the two semesters as long as no enrollment is below 12 credit hours.
Final Enrollment (Graduating)
If you are graduating, you may receive a reduction to the credit hour requirement for the semester immediately preceding your graduation. Scholarships will be prorated.
- If you have a departmental scholarship, and will be enrolled for less than 12.0 credits, your scholarship contract request will be sent to the contact person at your college/department for a review. You should be contacted in a timely manner regarding the results of your request.
