Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Exception 

The full-time enrollment requirement to receive campus merit scholarships is waived for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. If you are enrolled part-time for fall or spring, you will be able to keep your scholarship. This includes recipients of the Esteemed Scholars, Chancellor’s Achievement, Presidential, Arts & Humanities, Transfer Excellence, Impact, Regent, and Outstanding Colorado Students Award. Students receiving other campus scholarships should check with their department about any leniency. 

Students attending class in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 must enroll in at least 6 or more hours (half time or greater), or they will permanently lose eligibility. Recipients with an approved leave of absence/deferral for fall will retain their scholarship and are exempt from this requirement. 

  • Colorado residents: Students who enroll less than full time in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 will have their scholarship amount prorated based on enrollment level (i.e. half time, three quarter time). 

  • Nonresidents: Scholarship amounts for nonresident students will not be prorated. Students who enroll in 6 or more credit hours will receive the full scholarship amount. 

A semester taken as less than full time will count toward the maximum of eight semesters allowed to receive the scholarship (four for transfer students). 

Scholarship Renewal for Next Year 

Campus merit scholarships typically require 24-27 credit hours or more each academic year in order to renew the scholarship for the following year. For 2021-22, students will be allowed to renew if their cumulative GPA meets the required GPA for their program at the end of Spring 2021. The annual minimum credit hour requirement will be waived to allow renewal, unless the student lost eligibility by enrolling in less than 6 credit hours in fall or spring.
