There are a few important things to know about your Texas Wesleyan institutional scholarship. See the policy below and contact the Office of Financial Aid with any questions you may have.
1st Semester: Student signs up for 12 or more hours and receives a scholarship. If the student drops below 12 hours after the census date, they are required to complete 24 hours by the end of their second semester.
2nd Semester: Student signs up for 12 or more hours and receives their scholarships. The student does not complete and pass 24 hours by the end of this semester. Students can use summer semesters to get to the required 24 hours before the 3rd semester starts.
3rd Semester: Student signs up for 12 or more hours and receives their scholarship. The student did not complete 24 hours within the first two semesters. The student is placed on scholarship probation and has to complete 12 hours by the end of the third semester.
4th Semester: Student does not complete 12 hours in their third semester. The scholarship is suspended.
See the process followed for a student that does not meet the GPA requirements stated in their scholarship package.
If a student reestablishes the cumulative GPA requirement at any point during the timeframe outlined above, then the student will be considered in good standing.
Freshman students have up to 4 years of eligibility from their first semester at TXWES, including semesters where their scholarship is suspended. Transfer students have up to 3 years of eligibility from their first semester at TXWES, including semesters where the scholarship is suspended.
Texas Wesleyan scholarships cannot be used for classes or fees associated with the Study Abroad program. However, there is other financial aid such as grants, loans and outside scholarships that you can use to cover the cost.
Texas Wesleyan scholarships cannot be used to pay for classes through the online College Consortium.
Transfer students have the option to use their scholarship to pay for classes taken during the summer. They're eligible to use the same amount allotted for fall and spring semesters if enrolled in at least 12 credit hours. If enrolled in less than 12 credit hours, the scholarship is prorated. The remaining amount can be used in a later semester.
