Freshman scholarships offered by the Office of Admissions are renewable for up to eight consecutive semesters (four years) of undergraduate coursework or until you receive a bachelor’s degree (whichever occurs first). Depending on the awards, transfer scholarships are renewable for four consecutive semesters (two years) of undergraduate coursework or receipt of a bachelor’s degree (whichever occurs first).
All scholarships require that you meet the following renewal criteria:
- A minimum cumulative USF GPA of 3.0
- Enrollment as a full-time undergraduate student (minimum twelve undergraduate USF credit hours) in each term that scholarship funds are received. Funds are disbursed in the fall and spring semesters only
- Completion of 30 USF credit hours per academic year. NOTE: Summer session courses completed at USF may count towards your scholarship renewal. Cross-enrolling (transient) at another college/university, repeating a course, receiving an incomplete grade or auditing a course are not considered as satisfying renewal criteria deficiencies. Additionally, credits earned through AP, IB, AICE or CLEP exams, dual enrollment or transfer credits from other colleges/universities are not considered toward your 30-credit-hour requirement.
