Renewal information for upper year disbursement

When and how is a decision regarding my scholarship determined?

  • At the end of each academic year, a review of students records for those who hold scholarships is completed to determine if they have met renewal criteria.
  • If renewal criteria has been met: the student will be notified by email. Connect@MtA financial accounts will be updated with two equal installments of total value in October and January of the following year.
  • If renewal criteria has not been met: the students scholarship is revoked. Official correspondence will be sent to the student to notify them of this decision and provide instructions on an official appeal process.

What is my renewal criteria?

  • Entrance scholarships: achieving a 3.7 GPA on a course load of 30 course credits between the fall and winter terms.
  • Some designated scholarships may have different renewal criteria. The recipients of these awards are contacted directly and provided their unique renewal criteria in writing.
